CEWASTE is a two-year project funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. It developed a voluntary certification scheme for waste treatment.

Specifically, the project’s aim was to create, validate and launch the scheme for collection, transport and treatment facilities of key types of waste containing significant amounts of valuable and critical raw materials such as waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries.

Watch the video of Project Manager Dr. Shahrzad Manoochehri and Program Manager Dr. Sonia Valdivia, at World Resources Forum (WRF) who coordinate CEWASTE, introducing the project.
