CE-RISE | Circular Economy Resource Information System

The Circular Economy Resource Information System (CE-RISE) is an EU-funded project aiming to optimise raw material reuse and recovery in electronic products.

CE-RISE is still very much a work in progress, but it seeks to create an information system and integrate digital product passports. It will provide stakeholders, including consumers, with a better understanding of the green credentials of electronic products and how to preserve important raw materials through the reuse, repair and recycling of these items.

The CE-RISE information system will be evaluated using five case studies, comprising digital product passports developed for:

  1. ICT products
  2. printers
  3. solar panels
  4. batteries, and
  5. heating systems.

Ultimately, CE-RISE aims to foster a dynamic ecosystem geared toward prolonging the use of materials and stimulating circular business models to reduce waste generation.
