E-Waste Compensation as an International Financing Mechanism in Nigeria

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

  • Advance an existing solution for waste Li-ion batteries in a compensation scheme in Nigeria to achieve more local value-addition;
  • Develop a sound and efficient solution for waste flat panel displays in an e-waste compensation scheme in Nigeria;
  • Work out balanced and widely accepted comparison criteria to ensure that managed e-waste volumes are at least equivalent to the stated claims.
