The NGI eReuse-Ledger testbed is a permissioned distributed ledger to support experimentation about device traceability, provided by UPC in collaboration with the Obada.io organization and the University of Nevada-Reno in USA.
We need effective circular market ecosystems capable of reusing ICT devices, extending their lifespan for new uses, instead of always manufacturing new ones, through reuse, repair, and ensure final recycling in a sustainable way. The collaboration takes place between the industrial experience of OBADA, the knowledge about the reverse supply chain of electronics at the University of Nevada-Reno in USA with the NGI eReuse-Ledger testbed in Europe.
It offers an experimental distributed ledger for traceability that does not store details but only proofs (hashes) and economic deposits for devices as incentives. It is privacy-preserving while ensuring the trust, verifiability, irreversibility, tamper proof required safety properties for environmental accountability. The experimental results provide insights about performance and scalability as well as test the design of the operations and parameters of public API to record key operations.
