Projecting the split between historic and non-historic WEEE in Ireland
Optional Fields
2016 Fraunhofer. This paper presents work carried out to address the shortage of a reliable means for determining the future arisings of historic WEEE levels in Ireland. By using modelling techniques in conjunction with available databases, researchers were able to determine WEEE levels and historic WEEE percentages for Ireland over the period of 2000 to 2020. The data generation focused on those EEE types which contribute the largest amounts of WEEE each year by weight, namely the cooling, large domestic appliance and television WEEE categories and were the source of contention about the continued use of visible fees.
