A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in climate tech: The Kickstarting a Circular Economy for the Data Centre industry free webinar on March 30.
Transition from a linear to a circular economy is a HUGE challenge, especially with regard to electrical and electronic equipment. The data centre industry is heavily reliant on such equipment but attention to sustainability typically focusses on energy efficiency and carbon reduction.
The CEDaCI (Circular Economy for the Data Centre Industry) project was established to raise awareness about the (un)sustainability of current DCI business practices, and to demonstrate the potential for change and improving material resource efficiency.
CEDaCI brings together stakeholders from across the sector (designers, manufacturers, operators, refurbishers, recyclers) to output:
- 2 products/processes/technologies developed & tested in real-life conditions;
- eco-design/design guidelines to accelerate manufacture of circular economy-fit products;
- a decision-making tool for all data center sub-sectors to optimise CE business models;
- improved refurbishment, recycling and reclamation strategies for WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and CRM (Critical Raw Materials).
