Joint forces of industry and academia can pave the way to truly foster sustainability of Waste of Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) management. Against this background, the WEEE ID project funded by VINNOVA (Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems) developed an intelligent, automated sorting equipment for used electronics’ segregation and grading. It prevents operators from being exposed to hazardous substances from segregation processes and enables higher recycling rates within downstream processes thanks to increased sorting efficiency and accuracy. This abstract explores how the knowledge and technology developed within the WEEE ID project may have a positive impact on WEEE (or “e-waste”) management sustainability performance.

Nyckelord: e-waste, WEEE, artificial intelligence, sorting, sustainability
