About EE Processes

Data should tell a story. Process maps put data in context. EE process maps accelerate our understanding of climate change and ESG. Being confident in our understanding of Scope 3 emissions allows us to make difficult decisions.

For example, in the US, industrial waste landfills collect commercial and institutional waste. (Municipal solid waste facilities hold household waste.) Electronics and electricals go to special landfills manage hazardous wastes from cradle to grave. These landfills, called Subtitle C store hazardous waste out in the open, in piles or in containers. The technical term, 'waste piles' refers to eWaste that is not in a storage container. eWaste can be treated with land treatment units. These units rely on naturally occurring soil microbes and sunlight. Rain can accelerate chemical reactions that lead to corrosion in the devices. Corrosion is the process by which metals turn into metal oxides. For example, nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas) is a metal oxide that has 298 times the warming potential of carbon dioxide over 100 years. Having this understanding of the landfill process for your abandoned electronics equips you with the knowledge and confidence to ask your waste management suppliers about how their processes align with or diverge from standard practice. Moreover, this understanding allows you to explore creative ways to improve the status quo.

Unless we change our processes, we will reach 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming by 2030. At this temperature, heat waves will occur more often. Sea levels will rise to overwhelm major cities. Millions across the global south will be displaced. The ecosystems which naturally process our waste will collapse.

Another example lies with injection wells. Injection wells store fluid underground. The

So, what does the circular economy mean to you? A sustainable supply chain? Perhaps your organization has set net zero commitments, but believes upstream and downstream emissions are outside of scope. A prerequiste for a working partnership with MobiCycle involves accepting the idea of collective responsibility.

Our consultants will work with your internal stakeholders to map your processes and show how your activities support the entire Scope 3 emissions value chain. A birds eye view will help you determine where inefficiencies and undesirable practices remain.
