    • WEEE Trace Project Full Traceability of the management of WEEE using RFID RFID and Waste Workshop Reality Check Brussels 10th July 2012Page 1 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • 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.Objectives  Increase volume of WEEE legally controlled and recycled, 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 12/36: Page 2 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE-Trace: CIP Eco-Innovation Program 2010 call (Eco/10/277256) Total eligible costs: 2,35 M€ - 50% funding by EACIPartners  Technology Solutions provider (Coord): • Customers: WEEE compliance schemes  Manufacturer of household appliances External Associates (a.o):  Logistics operator:  Treatment plant: Page 3 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE-Trace in ES Market need / key features Improve WEEE collection / Reduce WEEE leaks.Use of sensor applications to ensure traceabilitythrough whole 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 proof-of- recycling (e.g. video),certification and invoicing processes. Simplification of reporting Integration of all information flows in Company’s IT platformsPage 4 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE Reality CheckKey issues Scope and deployment needs. RFID Tags Mobile RFID readers Standard: format and content. Pilot: WEEE tracking in practicePage 5 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE Project scope and deployment Not a demonstration project:Full scale commercial system to manage whole WEEE flow at ECOLEC (>70.000 2Q’2012 tons/yr) and all associated information 80 WEEE collection points 2-3Q’2013 15 logistic operators 40 treatment plantsPage 6 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE: tags Reality Check PAPERTAG FLAGTAG FOAMTAG  RFID + Barcode + Visual Cost  Shielding problems found and addressed.  Worked with supplier to reach affordability threshold.  Omni-directional for a maximum distance and angle.  1,4 million tags to manage WEEE  need to manage and control tags themselves  Resistance to handling and environment:  Adhesiveness  Abrasion (ink)  Environmental testing underwayPage 7 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE: RFID mobile readers Reality Check6 RFID mobile readers tested. Few suitable and designed for field applications Key aspects: o Technical aspects (reading distance, process capacity) o Usability and Ergonomics o Robustness and IP protection o Cost o ServicePage 8 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE: Code Standard Reality CheckLack of standard of reference for wastes Worked with GS1 Spain to develop SSCC standard code  incorporated to Project Able to link with future RFID tags in products using SGTIN code SGTIN SSCCPage 9 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
    • WEEE TRACE: Tracking WEEE in practice Tracked information:  Origin, destination, WEEE type, weight  Certificates and proofs (e.g. signatures, videos)  Picture and status e.g. scavenging  “track and trace” Location and travel  Management of incidences: “missings”, idle times, unconsisistencies (i.e. weights)Page 10
    • WEEE TRACE: Reality check - summary Still in pilot phase ( Oct’2012) Planning absolute necessary but you don’t find all problems until you face them (not in a powerpoint phase) Some issues to address in pilot: – tracking misses in readings (< 5%) – environmental resistance of tags – duty of care by waste chain – privacy issues w.r.t. image handling – lack of professionalism by actors – monitoring of potential by-passing of controlsPage 11 WEEE TRACE – RFID and Waste Workshop Brussels 20120710
