Abstract in another language

The subject of ReUse of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) now goes into its second round. While the recast of the EU Directive on the Restriction of Certain Substances in EEE (RoHS) (Draft WEEE recast 2012; ROHS 2002) has been completed already, it is close in case of the EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive (Di-rective 2011; WFD 2008).

Germany implemented the predecessor Directives with the German Act on Electrical and Electronic Equipment ((ElektroG) 2005). An amended version of the ElektroG including a further ordinance implementing the RoHS recast, the so-called "EEE-substance Ordinance" (ElektroStoffV 2012) will be adopted in the ongoing or coming year. In the meantime the stakeholders will have to prepare for the coming legal regime on the basis of the existing one. In order to support the concerned parties in their work, the VDI guideline committee 2343 - recycling of electric and electronic devices - was established. The objective of Guideline VDI 2343 is to elaborate and compile practice-tailored and state of the art recommendations for the parties concerned. This is on the one hand because of require-ments of the ElektroG, the German implementation of European legislation. On the other hand, ReUse, often also named as “remanufacturing - the ultimate form of recycling” (Steinhilper 1999) - promises big economical and ecological benefits. Nevertheless, remanufacturing of electronic and electric devices is - in contrast to the automotive applications - less practiced (Rosemann 2006). Therefore, the sheet covers different matters of remanufacturing in order to support small and medium enterprises in establishing remanufacturing activities properly. The sheet starts from the technological point of view, then focussing on economic, ecologic, legal and social objectives. With the intention of further deploying remanufacturing and reuse, recommendations for remanufacturing and refurbishing of electronic and electric devices are given. Their objective is to depict, under which conditions recycling or reuse of electric or electronic products and components is recommended.
