The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) is launching a brand-new virtual event – the Festival of Circular Economy – at which the renowned sustainability pioneer Dr Walter Stahel will give the opening keynote speech. Taking place on 20-21 April, the Festival will be the first event of its kind focused exclusively on the circular economy. “This will be a celebration of the great work being done on circular economy projects around the world,” said Sarah Poulter, CEO of CIWM, “and will enable organisations, big and small, to identify opportunities to scale up these projects to achieve critical mass.” Dr Stahel is credited with inventing the concept of the circular economy in a paper published in 1982 and his keynote speech will provide a new vision for realising the full value of our natural resources. “It will be my privilege to show how ‘recyclers’ and ‘waste managers’ in charge of today’s legacy waste will become managers of ‘value platforms’ for components and molecules, once circular materials have been commercialised,” Dr Stahel said.

Think about how many different pieces of technology the average household has purchased in the last decade. Phones, TVs, computers, tablets, and game consoles don’t last forever, and repairing them is difficult and often as expensive as simply buying a replacement. Electronics are integral to modern society, but electronic waste (e-waste) presents a complex and growing challenge in the path toward a circular economy—a more sustainable economic system that focuses on recycling materials and minimizing waste. Adding to the global waste challenge is the prevalence of dishonest recycling practices by companies who claim to be recycling electronics but actually dispose of them by other means, such as in landfills or shipping the waste to other countries.
