Finding and Capturing Value in e-Waste for Refrigerators Manufacturers and Recyclers

Abstract : In today’s highly competitive world, companies need to rethink how they create and capture value at all stages of their offering’s lifecycle. A major challenge is to integrate sustainability as a core source of value creation in their business model rather than as an add-on. E-Waste is one of the fastest-growing waste streams globally, and its value is still largely uncaptured. Urban communities generate high environmental and health impacts due to the e-waste produced by households. This paper aims to evaluate the value retained in refrigerators’ components at their end-of-life. This research work presents findings on how recyclers identify, categorise, and capture value from e-waste. Although we focus on refrigerators recyclers, the results could motivate refrigerators manufacturers to collaborate with recyclers for a more circular economy.
