ReValue Digital Ecosystem: A Model for a Solution
To achieve a systematic change, given the situation, we must find the solution by optimising the sector that manages used equipment.
We believe that the biggest challenge is to acquire a mindset, in economic processes, that is circular at the expense of the "old" concept of linearity.
Many actors, involved in the ICT sector, are trying to develop new processes and certifications to comply with the new green regulations, but it is a path still unknown to most people due to the lack of information and disorganisation in the management of transactions.
Data at hand shows that, in the European Community, most of the ICT devices, more than 50%, are catalogued as E-waste, without anyone really checking if they are EOL or if, integrated in the right channels, they could extend their life cycle for a few more years. All this happens because some fundamental components are missing, such as the classification and subsequent traceability of devices, a secondary market that is still disorganised and not stale. The incentive to pursue the path of refurbished devices, even with the Green Deal, at least on the part of European economic policies, something positive is changing.
The transition towards a circular ICT sector requires a system that connects all the actors involved in the End Of Life of devices, starting from industrials, refurbishers and certifiers.
We have developed this system at Circular Technologies!!!
The Digital Ecosystem ReValue created by us, allows, through a dedicated digital platform, to enable the development of the secondary market according to the regulations expressed by the GPP and the indications of the JRC.
