  3. 3. Sinctronics in Brazil: Why? Consumer Market Manufacturing Footprint Legislation The Brazilian electro-electronics market is large enough to sustain the volume required for a circular economy implementation. Brazil has a large Electro-Electronic manufacturing footprint providing local demand for recycled materials. In Brazil, PNRS (Nation Solid Waste Policy) will require that 17% of IT equipment return for recycling and responsible disposal over a 5 year incremental implementation.
