I have just arrived in Stockholm, in preparation for a study tour of various e-scrap recycling facilities that starts tomorrow. I am accompanying a group of Ghanaian officials and businessmen who are all in some way involved in or interested in the recycling of electric and electronic scrap. The group includes officials of the Ghanaian Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a Ghanaian consulting and advocacy firm Green Advocacy (GreenAd) and two members of the Greater Accra Scrap Dealers Association. The tour has been arranged by Raw Materials Group RMG AB who is leading the project “Energy Efficient Recycling of Electric and Electronic Scrap (e-scrap) in Ghana“, funded by the NDF.
It will be good to learn more about e-scrap recycling processes, and also the relevant business models.
But for now, I'm enjoying the comfort of Hakan's flat in the green area of Saltsjobaden, South of Stockholm.
