Closing the Loop in Tegenlicht

Great to see Joost de Kluijver from Closing the Loop (2014 alumnus) being featured in an episode of VPRO’s ‘Backlight’ (Tegenlicht), called ‘Dirty gold’ (Vuil goud). E-waste contains 60 times as much gold as a ton of gold ore. Moreover, the gold in electronic waste is easier (and more humane and environmental friendly) to harvest. The episode also shows the Belgium company that Joost works with for the recycling of the mobile phones he collects in Africa. Truly interesting, we can recommend you to watch it!
