Kurt Kyck, President (KMK Metals Recycling – IE) said “Lida has performed marvellously for EERA and all of the members over the last nine years and we would like to thank her for all her hard work. She has all the best wishes of everyone for continued success in her new career”.
The EERA Board took steps to seek out a successor, and are pleased to announce that Julie-Ann Adams, of Really Green Credentials, has agreed to take over Lida’s job from the start of January 2022.
Julie-Ann has a detailed knowledge and extensive experience of all matters WEEE and EU as she has more than 20 years’ experience in the waste management and local government sector and was a key contributor in the development and implementation of the WEEE and Battery and Accumulator Regulations in the UK. Julie-Ann is acknowledged as a leading technical adviser on producer responsibility-led regulations and standards and in the general treatment and recycling technology and waste management arena. She has been an active member of the CENELEC groups writing and reviewing the EN 50625 and EN 50614 WEEE standards since 2009.
Julie-Ann decided recently to stop her work as an auditor and the timing was therefore perfect for EERA as she will be able to work with Lida during this month to then take over in 2022. She is excited to focus on the aims of EERA and its’ members for the challenging times ahead including the new proposals for the WEEE Directive and complimentary regulations and EU objectives in waste shipments, REACH, POPs, and the circular economy.
