PRLog - Aug. 16, 2011 - NEW YORK -- Las Vegas, NV – Energy IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the e-Waste Management Summit (http://www.ewastemgmtsummit.com), taking place November 14 to 16, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV.  There is a pressing need both nationally and internationally to manage the masses of electronic equipment being discarded or recycled, and to minimize environmentally hazardous disposal processes.  The Summit provides a platform in which industry stakeholders convene to discuss the challenges of product stewardship, extended producer responsibility and electronic recycling.  

Industry analysts forecast that the worldwide market for e-waste recovery will grow from $5.7 billion in 2009 to nearly $14.7 billion by the end of 2014, representing a CAGR of 20.8% over the forecast period.*  In order to keep these quantities under control and minimize environmental impact of potentially toxic components, e-waste needs to be responsibly managed, recycled, and/or disposed of in a non-hazardous fashion.
The Summit will explore next generation e-waste techniques including:

•   Sustainable design as a smart business proposition
•   Value proposition of a manufacturer-led national program
•   Trends towards the national harmonization of e-Cycling
•   International electronic trade and the UN multi-stakeholder process PACE
•   Methodology and logistics of multi-jurisdictional compliance

And features speakers from:

•   Hewlett Packard
•   Electronic Manufacturer’s Recycling Management Company
•   Vizio
•   Dell

The attendees include executives who are pioneering the way forward for environmental compliance, reverse supply chain logistics, and sustainability, along with OEMs, retailers, and resellers working in the consumer electronics industry.  
Designed in collaboration with Original Equipment Manufacturers, the e-Waste Management Summit also recognizes manufacturers and retailers who have exhibited excellence in product stewardship and extended producer responsibility by providing a platform in which industry stakeholders discuss the challenges of responsible e-waste management and electronic recycling amongst their peers.
