Costa Rica's environment and waste association, Promocion del Saneamiento Ambiental en la Comunidad (Acepesa), will launch a study to minimize and manage the effects of electronic waste (computing and electronic equipment) in Costa Rica and the Netherlands, Acepesa project source Victoria Rudin told BNamericas. The study will also analyze the economic and social aspects of this type of waste. The Netherland's environment and waste organization, WASTE, teamed up with Acepesa in the development of the project, Rudin added. The study is part of a bilateral agreement between the two countries, financed by the Dutch government for US$281,000 (260,000 euros). Project completion and results are expected by end-March 2004.
