In the quest for a circular economy and a sustainable society, we need to transform our waste into a resource.

The waste package is due to be introduced in 2025 and Uppsala University is currently conducting research on the subject.

Read the article on Uppsala University's website about ongoing research on valuable waste, an issue that requires a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective.

Listen to an interview in Swedish Radio (approx. 2h 45 min into the program) with Per Fors, researcher at the Department of Civil and Industrial Engineering, about the value of electronic scrap.
