Solutions for Problematic Fractions from WEEE in Egypt

Solutions for Problematic Fractions from WEEE in Egypt

This study has been developed as part of the Sustainable Recycling Industries (SRI) Project in Egypt.

It provides an in-depth analysis of the current management of hazardous fractions from waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Egypt, based on field surveys and interviews with the main recyclers. It assesses the available infrastructure to handle hazardous fractions and identify gaps to be tackled in priority. It concludes that although there are environmentally sound solutions for some problematic fractions, challenges still exist for others, such as lithium-ion batteries, capacitors containing hazardous materials, BFR-containing plastics and CRT screens.
