BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–John Shegerian, Chairman, CEO and co-founder of Electronic
Recyclers International (ERI)
, the nation’s leading recycler of
electronic waste and the world’s largest cybersecurity-focused hardware
destruction company, was a featured panelist today at the Electronics
Goes Green
(EGG) conference in Berlin.

Speaking as part of a panel of experts contributing to a discussion on
“Closing the Information Gaps,” Shegerian described ERI’s vision of
“Taking the Circular Economy of Recycling Electronics to the Next Level”
and shared the stage with co-panelists representing Coolrec BV
(Netherlands); iFixit (Germany and USA); Demontage- und
Recycling-Zentrum D.R.Z. (Austria); and Murata Electronics Europe
(Netherlands). The discussion was moderated by Gergana Dimitrova of
Fraunhofer IZM.

The EGG Conference, organized by Fraunhofer IZM with support from the
Technical University of Berlin, is attended by forward-thinking global
experts from the realms of science and industry to create a global
think-tank aimed at improving and enhancing the sustainability of the
electronics sector. The event covers a wide range of aspects of green
electronics, electronics recycling, and the shift to a circular economy.

During the discussion, Shegerian diagrammed the circular economy of
electronics recycling for the audience and described the optimal
contributions of each of the participants of the circle – from
manufacturers to retailers to end users to recyclers, refurbishers and
beyond.

“It is an absolute honor and privilege to share insights and the stage
with sustainability-minded and socially responsible organizations such
as my esteemed fellow panelists,” said Shegerian. “The EGG event is
vitally important because it gives science and industry a chance to act
as sounding boards for one another and share best practices so we can
proactively discuss what is working around the world and what can
improve.”

Shegerian will be on the EGG stage again later in the week when he
presents the conference-closing keynote, “The Insecurity of Everything:
Balancing Green Responsibility with the Need for True CyberSecurity Data
Destruction.”
