E-Scrap (electronic scrap)

E-scrap - a growing recycling challenge

In today’s throwaway society, electronic scrap (E-scrap) poses one of the world’s biggest recycling problems, with the level of global waste estimated to have reached 50 million tonnes, last year. But within every piece of ‘redundant’ equipment, lie a number of high-value component parts that should be liberated, segregated and recycled. It doesn’t just make environmental sense – this methodology can yield impressive business revenue too.
