E-waste Compensation and International Financing Mechanisms with Nigeria

The project main objective was to advance the concept of ‘waste compensation’ where international brands and users of electrical and electronic equipment could contribute to a sound management of equivalent e-waste volumes in developing countries. Sub-objectives were:

1) Advance an existing solution for waste Li-ion batteries in a compensation scheme in Nigeria to achieve more local value-addition;

2) Develop a sound and efficient solution for waste flat panel displays in an e-waste compensation scheme in Nigeria;

3) Work out balanced and widely accepted comparison criteria to ensure that managed e-waste volumes are at least equivalent to the stated claims.
