The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the German international development agency, has awarded a contract to Landbell Group for the ‘Piloting of treatment solutions and innovative finance models for problematic e-waste fractions.’
The aim of this 18-month assignment is to achieve better e-waste treatment in low- and middle-income countries, where extended producer responsibility legislation is not yet in place. The contract is very much in line with Landbell Group’s mission to transform the global economy from linear to circular and to improve knowledge sharing.
The project will focus on the following problematic e-waste fractions: plastics, batteries, lamps, displays and PUR foams. Landbell Group experts will analyse how these waste streams are currently handled in West/East Africa, the Balkans and South America, and optimise the existing recycling processes by conducting two to three treatment pilots in three selected countries.
To ensure long-term financing for the treatment of problematic fractions, innovative financing models will be scoped out and piloted. The assignment also comprises technical and business advice and training for recyclers, as well as matchmaking with state-of-the-art recyclers in developed countries.
