    • WEEE-Trace Project Full Traceability of the management of WEEE CIP Eco-Innovation Program (Eco/10/277256 ) Cluster Workshop on "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications" Aachen, 19th April 2012Page 1 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE: Project VisionUse of advanced ICT and sensor-based technologies (RFID, optical identification, image capturing, geo- positioning, etc.) to:1. Ensure traceability of complete waste from electrical and electronics equipment (WEEE) management chain.2. Identify WEEE by Producer in support of Producer responsibility principle.Objectives  Increase (39%) volume of WEEE legally recycle reducing leaks to uncontrolled channels  Use of ICT to characterize and locate/funnel/sort/recycling different types of WEEE  Track and control incidences like scavenging, leaks, presence of free-riders, etc.  Facilitate enforcement and reporting  Identify and address replication opportunitiesDuration: 36 months (Jul 2011  Jul 2014) Currently in month 10/36: Page 2 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE-Trace: Project partnersFull life-cycle coverage: 6 partners and 3 associates (more in queue) covering whole life cycle take for pilot and commercial full-scale deploymentPartners  Technology Solutions provider (Coord): • Customers: WEEE compliance schemes Different actions and objectives but • complementary and • in partnership  Manufacturer of household appliances 3 External Associates (more in queue):  Logistics operator:  Treatment plant: Page 3 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACES’s two legsWEEE-TracePage 4 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ Business NeedAsekol as a collective take-back scheme for WEEE needs:• Report to Producers of EEE quantities /types of appliances collected and recycled• Report total weight of treated appliances• Sort WEEE for proper treatmentThis has to be achieved in a automated fashion.Page 5 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ selected approachThe feasibility study has proved that combined technology should be used and optical recognition should be the primary technology.Attributes which will recognized using optical sensors:• logo of the producer• descriptions on the device tag (producer, model number)• Barcodes Page 6 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ General Steps of Image Recognition Conveyor beltPage 7 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ Tag/Model Processing ExamplePage 8 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ logo identificationPage 9 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ Preliminary pilot test resultsPrimary focusing on display devices (CRT and flat displays). Main Challenges: Diverse dimensions of WEEE and of their optical attributes (logo, text on tags, etc) along with the required pace of the treatment (up to 1 m/s) ! and better results expected in full scale tests*from tested groupPage 10
    • WEEE TRACE in CZ Expected Outcomes of pilot • Real time Identification of Producers and models of WEEE units • Testing and validation of scanning devices for CRTs and FPDs • Verification of HW in operating conditions – evaluation of operational reliability • Method for generation and maintenance of database of EEE. Current planning 2Q2012 3Q2012 4Q2012 1Q2013 2Q2013 Preparation of core Pilot at logistics Recognition SW recognition Software centre finalization Implementation of Database full scale system generation HW requs assmntPage 11 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) WEEE Trace Workshop Aachen 2012 "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE-Trace in ES Market need / key features Improve WEEE collection / Reduce WEEE leaks.Use of sensor applications to ensure traceability throughwhole reverse supply chain, featuring:- BC/RFID tagging and tracking- Identification and characterization through RFID readers- Sorting and Channeling to appropriate treatment facilities- Traceability by unit – picture and video included.- Automation of incidence management.- Triggering of automated certification and invoicing processes.- Simplification of reporting- Standardization of information content and format Integration of all information flows in Company’s IT platforms Page 12 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE-Trace in ES Scope of Project Full scale commercial system to manage whole WEEE flow (>70.000 tons/yr) and all associated information 2Q’2012 2-3Q’2013 80 WEEE collection points 15 logistic operatorsPage 13 40 treatment plants
    • WEEE TRACE Dissemination Activities (WP#5)31 communication/dissemination actions so far (M10) www.wee-trace.eu Target audiences Page 14 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE-Trace Status and progressCurrent status (M10/36)WP#2: Definition of solution • Opportunity to advance 6• Sept’2011  June 2012 months Exploitation andWP#3: Technical implementation Business Plan: M18  M12• Pilots: Jan’2012  Sept2012 / Jun’2013• Full deployment: Oct’2012  Dec’2013 Page 15 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
    • WEEE TRACEMarket replication and uptake – pipeline of contacts Basel e-Waste European WEEE take- SIGRAUTO Asia initiative: back schemes (4) ELV scheme Brazil WEEE Logistics compliance operators (2) scheme Opportunities arising  long take-off maduration period Need to accelerate Actions and Business Plan (M18  M12)Page 16
    • WEEE TRACEKey stakeholders engagement Critical to address non-technical barriers and in support of market replicationPage 17
    • WEEE TRACE Main conclusions (so far) Still in month 10 of 36 - Challenging technical aspects - Implementation barriers always exist, and are addressed But in many places we speak… interest and potential replication opportunities arise  acceleration of Business and Exploitation Plan (WP#4) Enforcement WEEE schemes Other wastes Related fields Standardization  key issue to address international market opportunities and ensure life cycle approach. - Content and format. - Producer and supply chain infoPage 18 WEEE TRACE (Aachen 19 April 2012) "Sensor-based Sorting Technologies and Applications”
