Electronic Scrap (WEEE)

Applications:

Recovery of recyclables from Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

  • Metals and alloys
  • Plastics (thermoplastics, plexiglass, etc.)
  • Composite materials (circuit boards, etc.)
  • Brominated plastics (BFR)
  • Plastics with cadmium compounds
  • Material tainted with precious or recoverable metals (e.g. copper, brass, silver, etc.)
  • Sorting of monitor glass (CRT)
  • etc.

The trend for more and more electronics with an ever shorter life cycle continues to dominate. The processing of such appliances and machines can highly profitable. The recovery of precious metals and other types of metals and plastics (PCBs, etc.) are the main focus in sorting technology.

REDWAVE guarantees the highest value of recycling plants based on years of experience in the recycling industry. There are both “Customized WEEE sorting plants” and “Compact WEEE sorting plants” available.
