PAZ creates data repository.

The Polymer Alliance Zone of West Virginia (PAZ) through its electronic platforms GreenOn and ElectronicsRecy has announced the creation of a centralized data repository for electronics recycling related information.

This project, which is in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Electronic Industries Alliance, will provide up-to-date information on the collection and recycling of electronic waste.

The data repository is an open, collaborative public/private data sharing project built around the creation of several XML standards to aid in the sharing of data and results from electronics recycling efforts.

The first initiative involves developing common data elements in cooperation with EPA's Plug-In to eCycling program.

The Plug-In Pilots are collaborative efforts among EPA, retailers, equipment manufacturers, recyclers and state and local officials and include regional electronics recycling pilot projects in the Northeast, Minnesota and the Pacific Northwest.

PAZ is 501 (C) 3 non-profit economic development organization that seeks to support the growth and development of a viable electronics recycling industry through the MARCEE project for plastics from end-of-life electronics.

The IEEE International Symposium on Electronics & the Environment, to be held in Scottsdale, Ariz., May 10-12, will include a paper titled "Development of XML Industry Standards for Information Exchange and Commerce." The conference will address the technical issues regarding an industry XML schema and development process in detail.
