Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

This chapter will give an overview of WEEE Refurbishment and reuse. It begins by stating why the management of End-of-Life (EoL) electrical and electronic equipment deserves more focus than most other categories of solid waste. It describes and differentiates the reuse processes available for WEEE management, and based on this gives an industry sector specific example by describing the refurbishment of computers. It also outlines the key issues and future trends in that area.
