Reccon event addresses electronics recycling.

Representatives from industry, government and academic institutions worldwide will assemble in Morgantown, W. Va., in late November for a conference on electronic scrap recycling.

The Radisson Hotel and Conference Center is the site for "RECCON '05: Global Electronics Recycling Solutions," Nov. 28 to 30.

According to its organizers, "The conference is a forum for sharing information, ideas and innovative solutions to the challenges facing the electronics recycling community throughout the world."

Topics addressed will include end-of-life electronics trade relations between the United States and China; the globalization of industry; economic development in North America; and legislative issues and ideas.

Morgantown-based West Virginia University (WVU) is acting as the host of the RECCON event.

West Virginia University is a partner with the Polymer Alliance Zone of West Virginia, through the MARCEE project (Mid-Atlantic Recycling Center for End-of-Life Electronics), working to establish a regional model for end-of-life electronics recycling.
