Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 October 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 36
ICS Code (Electronic components in general): 31.020
ICS Code (Environmental impact assessment): 13.020.30
scope:

IEC/TR 62635, which is a technical report, provides a methodology for information exchange involving EEE manufacturers and recyclers, and for calculating the recyclability and recoverability rates to

• provide information to recyclers to enable appropriate and optimized EoL treatment operations,

• provide sufficient information to characterize activities at EoL treatment facilities in order to enable manufacturers to implement effective ECD,

• evaluate the recyclability and recoverability rates based on product attributes and reflecting real end-of-life practices.

Furthermore this technical report includes:

• criteria to describe EoL treatment scenarios;

• criteria to determine product parts that might require removal before material separation and related information to be provided by manufacturers (location and material composition);

• a format for information describing EoL scenarios and the results of EoL treatment activities;

• a method for calculating the recyclability and recoverability rate of EEE. The calculation is limited to EoL treatment and does not cover collection. The recyclability rate is expressed as a percentage of the mass of the product that can be recycled or reused, whereas the recoverability rate in addition includes a portion derived from energy recovery. This techncial report can be applied to all electrical and electronic equipment;

• some example data corresponding to identified scenarios provided in Annex D.
