The dismantling of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and the recovery of their useful materials can lead to serious environmental impacts mainly due to their complicated physical structure and the variety of toxic elements contained in their materi
Platinum group metals find extensive use in automobile catalysts, space materials and cancer therapy. Their natural resources are limited thus their recovery from the secondary sector has assumed a great significance. Liquid–liquid extraction provide
There is a huge opportunity for e-waste recyclers in Europe, according to a new report by market analysts Frost & Sullivan. The e-waste recycling market earned revenues of $1.30 billion in 2012 and will reach $1.79 in 2020.
China has set a goal of establishing a Circular Economy policy for recycling resources in the near future. To further efforts to build a circular society, we analyzed the current status of E-waste recycling and related social issues, including the case of
