BT Group are working to be circular by the end of March 2030 and a circular tech and telco ecosystem by the end of March 2040.
As part of that mission, BT is rolling out new, energy-efficient, high-speed mobile and fibre networks. To ensure a sustainable transformation, BT has formed an Exchange Clearance Operation (ECO) and is working with us to remove, reuse and recycle their old legacy network.
ECO involves recovering equipment from old telephone exchanges and reducing e-waste. This year alone, n2s will support BT in extracting 200 tonnes of copper cable, generating millions of pounds from recycling and the resale of redundant network equipment.
BT Group are also taking a plunge into our innovative bioleaching process developed with Coventry University and Bioscope to extract and recover precious and critical metals from technology equipment for re-use.
We are proud to collaborate with BT Group on this project which Is working towards and promoting a circular future.
