Best second life for electronic devices

Sector:
Waste

The solution

Circular economy needs to be implemented at a fast pace in this economic sector, in order to stop ressources consumption and waste. Manutan Recycling represents the symbol of this solution, as their mission is to maximize every aspect of any device.

Manutan Recycling proceeds to the collect, the sorting and the reuse or recycling of any device, to limit at most its carbon footprint. Currently, the ratio between recycling and reuse is 3 to 1, but the aim is to industrialize more processes to reverse this ratio.

The issue

Digital carbon footprint is one the most worrying aspects of decarbonation. Currently accounting for 6% of global carbon emissions, its impact is growing at a double digit rate and could reach 20% in 2030. With more the 40 billion informatic products in circulation, terminal production counts for 80% of total digital impact.

Core Carbon Principles

01

Unicity

All Manutan Recycling carbon credits are only available on Riverse registry. Currently, these carbon credits covers all the recycling activities of Manutan Recycling.

02

Measurability & reality

Manutan Recycling carbon avoidances are calculated with a cradle-to-grave comparative lifecycle analysis, on "global warming" criteria, following ISO 14067 norm.
All carbon credits currenly available are ex-post, meaning the carbon avoidances have already been verified and thus are real.
Key impact criterias:

  • tons of wastes collected,
  • t.km travelled
  • nb of smartphones/computers reconditionned
03

Additionnality

Currently, alternatives to Manutan Recycling are 9 times more carbon-intensive but far cheaper. Carbon credits help to scale the process to be more competitive, respecting the financial additionnality criteria.
There is no regulation making Manutan Recycling very efficient recycling process compulsory, respecting the regulation additionnality criteria.

04

Permanence

Carbon avoidances are not concerned by permanence criteria as avoidance are effective immediately without reversibility.

05

Rebound effects

Manutan Recycling is aligned with the European Taxonomy and do not harm any of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Avoidance of leakage is also taken into account during the certification process.
