Building a Circular Economy for Digital Infrastructure
Donderdag 27 mei: 15:00 – 15:45
*This session will be in English
The Data Centre Industry has grown rapidly and generates a large volume of eWaste / WEEE. The current infrastructure for dealing with this waste is underdeveloped and consequently, there is a real and urgent need to address this now. CEDaCI will build a Circular Economy for the Data Centre Industry by bringing together stakeholders from all equipment life cycle stages to turn this waste into a useful resource and support the ongoing rapid growth of the DCI. The CEDaCI project extends product life through second use and refurbishment, increases dematerialisation through improved EcoDesign Guidelines and increased the WEEE collection, processing and recycling.
In this session, our panellists will be talking about how the CEDaCI project develops the Circular Economy for the Data Centre Industry. This panel will tackle the challenges in DCI`s journey towards circularity and present the whole systems approach by covering different life cycle stages.
