    Electronic scrap shredding for the electronic waste management industry

    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...

One particular challenge in this recycling process is presented by chlorofluorocarbons such as R 11, R 12 or R 141b, which were used for decades as foaming agents for insulation materials. Since these substances damage the Earth’s...

    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain...
