The E-Scrap Conference is the premier electronic waste recycling conference of North America and hosts industry leaders from around the world who network and discuss trends and challenges facing the electronic waste recycling industry today.

Shegerian also discussed the promise of urban mining for metals, plastics, glass and “rare earth metals and magnets” in the ever deepening pool of unwanted consumer electronics.

“It’s an honor to have been asked to participate in this prestigious E-Scrap Conference discussion alongside my fellow industry leaders,” said Shegerian. “It is particularly rewarding to be communicating and sharing ideas with my fellow pioneers of this young but flourishing industry here at E-Scrap – where so many forward minded leading lights of the electronic recycling world have come together to discover more about innovation and sustainability and have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences.”
