  • Tokyo 2020: assez de métal recyclé pour fabriquer toutes les médailles

Les organisateurs des Jeux olympiques de Tokyo 2020 ont annoncé, jeudi 7 février, que les médailles des prochains jeux d'été seraient fabriquées à partir de métaux recyclés, indique le site officiel (en japonais).

Les entreprises ont aussi été mise à contribution. Aux Jeux olympiques de Rio en 2016, environ 30% des médailles d'argent et de bronze des médailles provenaient de matériaux recyclés, reprend la BBC. L'ambassade de France au Japon a elle aussi participé, en remettant 311 cartes électroniques de téléphones publics parisiens hors d'usage.

Selon les chiffres les plus récents, publiés à la fin du mois de novembre, la collecte s'élevait déjà à 47 488 tonnes de produits, sans compter les cinq millions de téléphones mobiles usés venant des opérateurs locaux.

Dick Durbin , D-Ill., said those details haven't been worked out. "Negotiations are ongoing and both sides are exchanging offers". It seemed likelier to provide closer to the $1.6 billion a bipartisan Senate panel approved for fencing past year .

La quantité requise de bronze avait été atteinte en juin dernier et, en octobre, 90% des besoins en or étaient satisfaits ainsi que 85% de ceux en argent. Leur objectif était de récupérer 4 100 kilogrammes d'argent, 2 700 kg de bronze et 30,2 d'or.

Au rythme observé du recyclage, les quantités de métal seront recueillies dans les temps (la campagne s'arrête au 31 mars) et il reste maintenant à dévoiler le design des médailles pour l'événement cet été.
