CEN Workshop on methodology to improve the recyclability rate of Critical Raw Materials from cars

This CWA is related to two aspects: the identification of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) embedded in car electronics and the information sharing among all the actors involved (for several reasons and with different roles) in automotive supply chains. This CWA defines a method to support all the automotive actors in identifying the presence of CRMs in car electronics and disassembling/separating/recycling these components in a proper way. The final aim is improving the recyclability rate of CRMs from cars, create a market for secondary CRMs and reuse CRMs in new high-value applications (possibly within the automotive sector).

Potential interested stakeholders to be involved in this CEN Workshop are:


Car parts suppliers, car makers, car dismantlers and shredders, academic and research, governmental authorities, non-governmental organization (NGOs).


The kick-off meeting will be held on 13 December 2023. The kick-off meeting will be online. Online access will be provided in the invitation.


All interested parties are invited to submit their registration form and the comments on the draft Project Plan to Workshop Secretary, Mario GALLO, mario.gallo@uni.com by 27 November 2023. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below (word document).


The final deliverables of this Workshop are expected to be finalized in May 2024.
