A Second LIFE for Critical Raw Materials

Date: 20th February, 2019

Location: London, UK




An interactive, innovative and informative programme has been designed to both celebrate the successes of the CRM Recovery project and to discuss the way forward towards increased Critical Raw Material (CRM) recovery targets.

Themes include:

  • How do we increase the collection and recovery of CRMs from waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)?
  • How are businesses, funding bodies and research organisations approaching these challenges across Europe?
  • How do we work together to establish an effective supply chain?


Delegates will learn about the CRM Recovery project’s collaborative collection and recovery trials across the UK, Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic.  Furthermore, there will be presentations and discussions regarding the project’s policy and infrastructure recommendations, plus EU policy perspectives from the European Commission.

Businesses, funding bodies and research organisations with an interest in the recovery of valuable CRMs are invited to attend.  To secure a free place at the event, you can register here.  Tickets are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.
