More than 80 exhibitors will present solutions for building a circular economy at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition center in Germany from June 28-29.
Electromobility and renewable energies are increasing the demand for raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, or rare earths. The extraction and processing of these resources are dominated by only a few countries, making the rest of the world dependent on imports. Reports such as the discovery of a rare earth deposit in Sweden at the beginning of this year are therefore gathering a lot of attention. However, it will probably be many years, if not decades, before new deposits can actually reduce Europe’s dependence on raw material imports, especially from Asia.
Industry and science are however already working on solutions that can make a significant and at the same time environmentally friendly contribution to secure supplies much faster. These include the development of a circular economy for raw materials classified as critical by both the EU and the USA.

The existing technical approaches and how industry and stakeholders respond to the challenges will be on display at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition center from June 28-29. Then, E-Waste World Conference & Expo opens its doors for the third time in the German financial center. The high-profile industry event will be held alongside the Battery Recycling and Metal Recycling expos and will include more than 80 exhibitors.
In addition, more than 100 speakers will give presentations and panels on four topics on both days, ranging from the refurbishment of used equipment to the recycling of critical raw materials. Trade show visitors can move freely between conference tracks on both days to get their own comprehensive picture of the latest developments.
The registration phase for the event is already underway. More information can be found at https://ewaste-expo.com/. Rawmaterials.net will be live on-site and report in English, French, and German.
