The WEEE Forum, an association of WEEE producer responsibility organisations, has developed a database application, WF-RepTool, to determine treatment results for WEEE in a transparent, traceable manner and to achieve comparable results.
It is a tool that allows to calculate recycling and recovery rates in accordance with what is required in the WeeeLabex standard.
The focus lies on the determination of de-pollution results of WEEE and – as main target - on the determination of recycling and recovery results to be able to compare results achieved with targets rates given by the legal requirements.
The WF-RepTool is built up on 4 ‘pillars’ of the 4 background lists (the WF-RepLists).
- Input fractions
- Technologies used
- Output fractions
The four background lists provide uniform names for the use in the tool and – as one of the key elements - the classification of the use of fractions (or its individual components) in final treatment processes applied.
