Reusable knowledge

Reuse, recycling and environmentally responsible management of electronic waste and batteries is a major global challenge. Therefore, Elretur initiates and participates in studies and analyses within the field. We also collect and share knowledge about the reuse and recycling of electronics and batteries in order to inspire businesses and citizens to focus on the challenges and get even more out of the many end-of-life products that are thrown out every year.
