Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


Within course of the project “Latin America-European network on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, research, development and analysis” (LaWEEEda) modern and high quality modules, courses and educational products will be developed. These educational products are especially tailored for Nicaragua and Brazil and include both academic education and continuing professional development (CPD) training courses in the area of WEEE management and related entrepreneurial skills. This report focuses on the newly developed CPD educational material. This comprises following elements:

• Dismantling videos: videos demonstrating and explaining the sequence of dismantling for a number of different e-waste products practical
• Dismantling training: specifically for practitioners it is important to understand the sequence of dismantling and the output materials from this treatment step
• Plant layout design: the participants learn to plan and design processes in the recycling of e-waste products
• Entrepreneurship: beside technical knowledge other skills in non-technical areas like cost calculation and business plan development are of importance. Training in these fields is given in connection with the practical dismantling training.
