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.’
