In 2022, 41,493 tonnes of WEEE were reported directly to BeWeee. This is 3.20% more than the previous year. Especially for professional WEEE, companies found even more their way to the reporting platform (+22%).
Most of the volume reported at BeWeee consists of electro-appliances. But the share of photovoltaic panels is increasing from year to year. In 2022, there are 657 tonnes of discarded photovoltaic panels were already reported.
|Ever since its establishment, BeWeee has been steadily contributing to achieving our country's European collection target. In five years,the reported volume has increased by 6.|
|BeWeee also consolidates the collection results for the whole country: earlier this year, the figures of Recupel and PV CYCLE Belgium were also published. Added up, we arrive at an overall collection volume of 161,804 tonnes for Belgium in 2022.|
The overall collection rate (OOM/POM) for Belgium in 2022 ends up at 48.17%. However, one has to take into account the massive roll-out of photovoltaic panels in recent years and their 10-year product and 20-year performance guarantees, which limit the number of discarded photovoltaic panels today. Both factors thus have a very large impact on the ratio (OOM/POM). The total collection rate (OOM/POM) without photovoltaic panels is 54.06%.
In the coming years, BeWeee intends to do even better to further increase
the reporting rate to achieve the 65% collection target imposed by Europe. Companies and organisations will continue to be addressed individually and collectively to fulfil their obligations.
