Circularity in the Danish WEEE Management SystemAalborg University, 2021: The main recommendations in this thesis are to promote a unified network of reuse centres in the Danish WEEE management system, increase harmonization of the WEEE Directive across Member States, implementation of modulated fees to promote ecodesign, the marking of electronic products to facilitate disassembly as well as demonstrating the product’s effort in ecodesign, and to implement quotas on reuse targets.

Holes in the Circular Economy: WEEE Leakage from Europe.A Report of the e-Trash Transparency ProjectBasel Action Network, 2018: The report reveals the findings of a two-year study in 10 EU countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the UK ) that followed 314 old computers, printers, and monitors in which GPS Trackers had been secretly installed to determine the rate and flows of "leakage" from the EU of consumer-generated WEEE. 19 (6%) of the tracked scrap equipment was exported to the countries of Ghana, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tanzania, Thailand, and Ukraine, outside of the EU; the flows discovered, if extrapolated, would total 352,474 metric tonnes per annum, moving from the EU to developing countries.

Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Denmark: Flows, quantities and managementSDU Life Cycle Engineering of the University of Southern Denmark, 2016: A study with a comprehensive mapping and estimation of the flows of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and the corresponding waste (WEEE) in Denmark. The quantitative analysis is supplemented with a thorough diagnosis of the WEEE management system. Dynamic material flow analysis (MFA) is used to estimate the flows for the period of 1990–2025.

Danish WEEE marketDanish Environmental Protection Agency, 2015: This report contains a study of markets, actors and technologies in treatment of WEEE in Denmark With this analysis, a better understanding of the playing field for the actors involved in what is labelled “the golden triangle”: EEE producers, technology suppliers and WEEE treatment companies, is achieved.48
WEEE system setup a comparison of Sweden, Norway and Denmark IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, 2015: This report is a short summary of the findings from the project WEEE Setup, comparing the legislation and setup of the collection systems for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The setup aspects that have been studied and compared are the practical implementation of legislation, the material flows and financial flows in the systems and the clearing models used between actors in the respective countries
