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.
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.
Effective one-step removal-inertization of hazardous metals (Cd and Hg) by environmental friendly re

HMe2pipdt]I3 (Me2pipdt = N,N′-dimethyl-piperazine-2,3-dithione, 1) is capable to quantitatively dissolve elemental Cd and Hg to produce in a one-step reaction the [CdI(Me2pipdt)2]I3 (2) and [HgI2(Me2pipdt)] (3) complexes. Crystals of 2 and 3 have been str
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.
Start-up ventures anticipate increased electronics scrap availability in the U.S. will permit introducing domestic refining into the supply chain.
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
Electronic waste has been increasing proportionally with the technology. So, nowadays, it is necessary to consider the useful life, recycling, and final disposal of these equipment. Metals, such as Au, Ag, Cu, Sn and Ni can be found in the printed circuit

Human exposure to pollutants from e-waste is an important scientific issue for their health effects. In this study, organohalogen pollutants in human serum sample from an e-waste dismantling site (n = 35) and a control site (n = 21), both located in Tianj
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
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
