Sinctronics in Brazil: Why?
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
