A close look at the material flowing into and out of the recycling process--particularly precious metals--shows that conventional sorting technologies such as shredding lead to extensived losses of high-value material.
As the world’s leading manufacturing country, China has become the largest dumping ground for e-waste, resulting in serious pollution of heavy metals in China. This study reviews recent studies on environmental effects of heavy metals from the e-waste rec
Primary constituents of e-waste from end-of-life (EOL) computers consist of glass, metals and plastics. Thus the quality of recycling of e-waste is dependent upon individual indicators like cathode ray tube (CRT) recycling, plastics recycling and recovery
Start-up ventures anticipate increased electronics scrap availability in the U.S. will permit introducing domestic refining into the supply chain.
Items manufactured with recycled electroic goods have grown during the past five years due to shifts in consumer preference toward environmentally friendly products. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates revenue will increase at 8.6% annually.

The objective of this work is to study the recycling of materials from parallel wire cable through unit operations of mineral processing.
We compared the environmental burdens in the management of end-of life cathode ray tubes (CRTs) within two frameworks according to the different technologies of the production of televisions/monitors. In the first case, CRT recycling is addressed to the r

Diverting waste to destinations other than landfill is not only financially prudent but it is also the environmentally sound thing to do. Used electronics, often called “e-waste” or “WEEE” (waste electric and electronic equipment) are problemati

Waste or contaminated polyolefins were disposed through microwave assisted pyrolysis (MAP) using tires or carbonaceous char as microwave (MW) absorber. High density polyethylene (HDPE) was converted into waxy products when standard heating was employed. H
The vastly increasing amounts of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has made it imperative to develop systems that can guarantee selective collection and correct treatment of such waste. The European Union (EU) Directive 2002/96/EC appl
