Abstract in another language

Speaking in terms of figure skating, by now the electronic industry has done its short programme under the WEEE- and RoHS Directives [1], [2] with registering their electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) put on the EU markets with the national clearing houses, setting up take-back and disposal schemes for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) as well as by replacing lead in EEE. This releases energies for the freestyle part, including a broader implementation of ReUse for EEE as foreseen by the WEEE Directive. ReUse entails a particular potential for cost-saving, innovation and ecological benefits in the life-cycle of EEE and is, therefore, often called “the ultimate and most comprehensive form of recycling” [3]. Germany has implemented the WEEE- and RoHS Directives in the Act on Electrical and Electronic Equipment (ElektroG) [6] In order to support the parties subject to the obligations under the ElektroG in their implementation, the Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V. (German Association of Engineers, VDI [4]) established a specific Guideline Committee on the Recycling of WEEE. The committee elaborates and codifies practice-tailored and state of the art recommendations for the parties concerned laid down in the guideline VDI 2343. Given the importance of ReUse a specific section of the guideline is dedicated to this topic With the intention of further deploying ReUse, the guideline gives recommendations for the ReUse of WEEE and their components. It explores the technological, economical, ecological, legal and social preconditions and implications of ReUse, which, in contrast to the automotive applications, is still rarely supported in the electronic industry [5]. The ReUse section also includes definitions of basic standards and further sets out different ways of ReUse in order to support small and medium-sized enterprises in establishing ReUse activities properly.
