Date: Dec. 2, 2019
The 9th annual meeting of the International E-waste Management Network was held in Bangkok, Thailand from December 2-4, 2019. Over 50 experts and scholars from nine countries shared their experiences with building partnerships concerning E-waste management, recycling management systems and innovative technologies, thereby strengthening the sharing of information on international E-waste management.
The Taiwan EPA pointed out that Taiwan has helped to establish successful recycling policy models in many countries. This year, the meeting focused on the communication between countries to improve E-waste management systems. Experts from Brazil shared information on their challenges and on the implementation of a new E-waste reverse logistics system plan. This will be an important incentive for partner countries to set up resource recycling systems, and also demonstrates the impact over the years of Taiwan-US cooperation and partner meetings in the field of international e-waste management.
During the meeting, Taiwan shared information on its successful recycling system with the partner countries and presented several new sustainable innovations for recycling, thus promoting Taiwan’s recycling industry to the world.
