Collaborative Research and Training Experience in Sustainable Electronics and Eco-Design (CREATE SEED)

Mission

To promote sustainability in the electronics industry, a paradigm shift needs to occur in its economic practices from linear to circular. 

Recycling & Urban mining

The presence of valuable metals in the WEEE stream constitutes economic opportunities for the recycling industry. There is 100 times more gold in a ton of mobile phones than in a ton of gold ore. The material value alone is worth $62.5 billion.

Waste electrical & electronic equipment (WEEE)

According to the Global E-Waste Monitor 2020*, 53.6 Mt of E-Waste has been produced worldwide in 2019 and this amount is expected to reach 74.7 Mt by 2030.

Sustainable Electronics

Design by bringing together the best of Conventional Inorganic Electronics and Emerging Organic Technologies.

Circular Economy

To promote sustainability in the electronics industry, a paradigm shift needs to occur in its economic practices from linear to circular.

A team of eleven professors from six Canadian universities and more than 30 Quebec, Canadian and international academic and industrial collaborators, has received funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) for the Collaborative Research and Training Experience in Sustainable Electronics and Eco-Design (CREATE SEED) initiative, where Prof. Clara Santato is principal investigator. In this program, student interns and researchers will address issues related to electrical and electronic equipment waste (also known as WEEE or e-waste), improvement of currents practices in electronics and electronics eco-design.
