The e-waste recycling is a worldwide concern by both environmental and economic reasons. This is due to their hazardous content which can posse the ambient and respectively human life but in the same time, by the valorization of its content in a sustainable manner, this waste can became an important secondary resource for manufacturing on new products. The “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” paradigm which is the base of circular economy principle, has been considered as a base in the realization of Fenix (Future business models for the Efficient recovery of Natural and Industrial secondary resources in eXtended supply chains contexts) Horizon 2020 European Project. Within this project, considering our already achieved experience in the field of e-waste (in particular, waste printed circuit boards) by hydrometallurgical methods and the experience of the other 9 partners, experts in various institutions and fields (SME’s for e-waste collection and recycling, research centers for materials preparation and characterization and also in designing of new products), sustainable technologies for in a closed loop way will be developed.
