eReuse.org (Electronic Reuse) collectively create, share and manage a set of open-source resources to extend the electronic products lifetime and ensure recycling. This resources are tools and distributed services for perform 'preparation for reuse', 'refurbish' and 'reuse' operations such as checking, data wiping, inventory, trading, channeling and tracking of devices, including quality procedures and certifications. We are a global federation of local groups, organisations, and communities that are using a global open-data store that provides traceability and data-driven circular economy, with transparent and good technical data for measuring durability of digital devices and their components. Any initiative focused on repairing, refurbishing, reusing and recycling, and in general promoting zero waste and circular economy on electronic equipment are warm welcomed to join to eReuse.org federation; we offer to all of them data, services and technologies to gain profitability, effectiveness, efficiency, and traceability to maximize circularity of digital devices.
Now there are open tools and standards that can assist in the preparation for reuse process (hardware rating and testing, deletion of data, inventory, labeling, and packaging), certification of the […]
