One of the greatest challenges facing our society is the reclamation of valuable raw materials from electrical and electronic scrap. A global scrap volume exceeding 40 million tonnes a year – a figure forecast to double by 2025 – presents both a challenge and an opportunity. Since even in Germany only some 40% of scrap is currently fed into a waste management process, we may assume that the global rate of waste management is still substantially lower. With additional support from WEEE Directive legislation, this represents enormous growth potential for recycling companies in all consumer-oriented markets.
