Scaling the circular economy
Circular Industries has developed a patented process for Deep Recovery of raw materials present in low-grade Waste Printed Circuit Boards.
Electronic waste is the world’s fastest growing waste stream. Nevertheless, in the EU less than 46% of e-waste is recycled. In order to achieve the recycling target of 65%, the collection and dismantling of low-grade e-waste must be made economically attractive.
Circular Industries has developed a patented process for the recovery of raw materials present in low-grade waste printed circuit boards (WPCB). By offering suppliers the possibility of a higher payout, the collection, dismantling and trade of low-grade e-waste becomes economically appealing. The process generates no toxic emissions, polluted wastewater or unusable residues. The raw materials produced benefit the security of supply of raw materials to EU manufacturing industries.
