Hunan Provincial Key Laboratory of Non-ferrous Metal Resources Recycling Digging out “gold mines” from electronic waste
Today, the upgrading of electrical and electronic products is accelerating. The inevitable problem is that the number of electronic waste, ie, electronic waste, has risen sharply. If it is improperly handled, it will easily cause pollution to the environment. However, electronic waste also has the opposite side that is not known to the general public: like waste refrigerators. The non-ferrous metals such as gold, silver and copper in washing machines, televisions, air conditioners, and computers account for more than 30% of the total, and are inexhaustible "urban mineral resources." Is there a law that can both develop “urban minerals” in e-waste for recycling and eliminate the toxicities of e-waste polluting the environment? The new technology of green recycling of electronic waste developed by Central South University has solved the problem of resource utilization of harmless treatment.
