Securis Top Executive Attends E-Scrap 2008 Conference and Tradeshow
The E-Scrap Conference & Tradeshow is the premier electronics recycling conference of North America. E-Scrap 2008 was held in Phoenix, AZ on September 17th and 18th, 2008. The conference and tradeshow allow attendees to network and collaborate over a variety of issues. Last year, E-Scrap 2007, held in Atlanta, GA, attracted close to one thousand attendees from over a dozen countries. Securis’s Vice President of Sales, Jeff Farber went to this conference in hopes of bringing new ideas and networking opportunities to the company as well as his work with the Joint Commission on Technology Science’s eCycling committee and the Northern Virginia Technology Council.
The key players of the industry attend to go over the comprehensive overviews of legislative and policy issues. The conference agenda features detailed industry assessments, including analyses of stewardship systems and trends in North America. The conference also deals with issues of e-scrap collection, recycling market factors, and legislative policy considerations presented by leading experts in the industry.
Several workshops were offered at E-Scrap 2008. These workshops included “State Harmonization: Can the Patchwork of State Programs Work Together?” which dealt with issues of state and local electronics recycling programs with no immediate prospect of a national program.
In addition to informative sessions, the tradeshow exhibited the latest innovations and service offerings from firms providing recovery opportunities, consulting services and markets for e-scrap materials.
“E-Scrap is an extremely valuable event in our industry. At this event, we are all given an opportunity to share news and ideas with the experts in electronics recycling. Conferences and networking are essential to this industry so that we may achieve some sort of industry-wide standards,” states Jeff Farber, Vice President of Sales. Mr. Farber hopes to use this opportunity to update those in the Joint Commission on Technology Science’s eCycling committee about current issues in the recycling.
