Title Smart tracker chips - Feasibility study on the inclusion of RFID in Electrical and Electronic Equipment for WEEE management
Project Number 16467
Abstract/Scope This Technical Report investigates in the light of the implementation of the WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC) the feasibility of deploying machine readable product identification technologies (e.g. smart tracker chips) to fulfil the marking requirement for the purpose of implementing producer responsibility. The product recognition shall provide information for waste stream management (sorting, reporting and cost allocation). Machine readable product identification technologies can be utilized during every phase of the product life cycle of an EEE. The WEEE management is the last phase. This Technical Report focuses on this phase only.
