IERC 2021 – call for papers

While many recycling conferences have been cancelled or postponed because of the pandemic, the International Electronics Recycling Congress will take place as planned. On 20-22 January, the global e-scrap recycling scene will gather, as always, in Salzburg, Austria. It will be a special event as IERC is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

‘The call for papers is now on,’ says Jeanette Duttlinger of event organiser ICM. ‘Professionals in the broad field of electronics recycling are invited to send in their presentation proposals. We are interested in new business models and technical innovations. If you want to share your ideas with an international audience of experts, use the IERC 2021 platform.’

Recycling … and more

IERC 2021 will focus on the ‘circular economy of electronics’. The main topics to be spotlighted: success stories in eco-design and refurbishment; the impacts & opportunities of the European Green Deal; and best practices from the global e-scrap recycling scene. Other topics include smart technology (AI/robotics), safety standards and the Li-ion battery wave.

There will be a large exhibition area with more than 80 booths creating the perfect opportunity to learn, meet and network. In addition IERC 2021 will organise technology workshops and plant tours.

The event will bring together more than 500 international professionals representing among others recycling companies and electronics manufacturers (OEMs) as well as authorities, technology and equipment  providers, research institutes, and those involved in logistics.
