Over the last decade, responsible sourcing has become a topic of broad interest. Policymakers, consumers and companies have all referred to it as a way to address the sustainability risks of global mineral supply chains, but the term has also been used to refer to a wide range of other sustainability objectives.
An industry that is particularly susceptible to the issue is battery manufacturing, as it is largely dependent on critical raw material imports. In the past few years, stakeholders have highlighted supply chain risks related to raw materials in batteries, comprising environmental, social and governance risks.

The Recycling Expo and Conference “eREC” is a virtual platform for the recycling industry that facilitates the national and international exchange between companies and customers. Companies can use this platform to present themselves, their newest products, and innovations and enjoy the advantages of online networking. Accordingly, the digital recycling expo and conference is the best opportunity to present oneself to customers without any travel costs involved.
The PIUS conference will take place as a hybrid event at the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld.
The sustainable use of resources and energy protects our environment and reduces costs. Companies that decide to apply and implement "production-integrated environmental protection" can improve the cost structure in production through PIUS measures and the efficient use of cross-sectional technologies. In this context, digitalisation plays an increasingly important role and often represents a major challenge for companies. At the same time, Industry 4.0 and the IoT (Internet of Things) offer the opportunity to save resources in the company and use them more efficiently. This is decisive for the competitiveness of our location.
