Electronics wastes recovery

Monday, 10 March, 2003

Electronic wastes - discarded computers, televisions, mobile phones, audio equipment and batteries - can leach lead and other substances that may seep into groundwater supplies.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute have devised a reverse production system that creates infrastructure to recover and reuse every material contained within ewastes - metals such as lead, copper, aluminium, gold, various plastics, glass and wire. They are devising reverse production systems that will collect etrash, tear apart devices (de-manufacture it) and use the components and materials again - all while making the process economically viable.
