Refurbished IT – Waste or Product? Obstacles to the digital divide... | 11/7/2012

Computer Aid International will be hosting a roundtable discussion at the ICT for Sustainability event on 13 November 2013 at the QEII Conference Centre. 

How IT waste is legally defined or simply understood will increasingly cause conflicts. UK regional differences, lack of global consistency on e-waste laws and illegal practices all compromise the perceived and actual value of old IT. Yet computer reuse can be 20 times more energy efficient than recycling – so how can this be called waste?

Join this special roundtable discussion with Computer Aid and Phil Conran from 360 Environmental at 12:00 - 12:30pm to hear and share views on this spirited area of sustainability.
