Chris Carroll (BSc) Reuse networks for ICT organisations

Chris characterised and analysed the operations of third sector ICT (information and communication technologies) reuse organisations in the UK.

There are at least 46 organisations that repair/refurbish and sell reused electrical and electronic equipment (REEE) most of which deal with computers and related devices. Main donors for used electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE) are private businesses and public administration whereas major customers for REEE are private individuals. The organisations sold ~241K appliances in 2010. Using an in-depth case study, Chris also assessed the potential contribution of the organisations to a reuse network where materials/by-products from ICT industries are exchanged on a resource platform and ultimately channelled as raw materials for other industries.
