It is unbelievable how fast the time is running. For one year now we have been successfully connecting providers and customers of secondary raw materials. We will celebrate our first anniversary at the “International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC) 2019”. Last year, we presented SECONTRADE for the first time at the IERC. This is why we decided to celebrate our first birthday in Salzburg (AT).


As we know that some of our current traders will be present at the IERC 2019, we want to use the possibility to thank them for their loyalty. With our mini- birthday cakes we want to celebrate the platforms existence and success. SECONTRADE CEO Brigitte Reich and UFH CEO Marion Mitsch are looking forward to seeing you at our exhibition stand.

First birthday at the IERC 2019

Sneak peek into 2019

We are really proud of the SECONTRADE-Network we have built so far. Apart from our first birthday, we reached another milestone in January 2019: 10.000 tons of raw materials have already been offered on the platform. Most of our current traders are based in the D-A-CH countries. As we recognized, for example at the Ecomondo 2018, other European countries show interest in the digitization of raw materials’ trading as well. This is why we are focusing on the international growth of the platform and the SECONTRADE-Network in 2019. This will make it possible to find new source and destination countries for secondary raw materials or to facilitate domestic trade in individual countries.

About the IERC 2019

As usual, the IERC 2019 will be the hub for more than 500 international producers, recyclers, recycling associations etc. New recycling technologies, -regulations and -processes are discussed, as well as the current prices. Main topics are complications of the circular economy or the relevance of recycling in achieving sustainability-goals.
