Stepping into e-waste recovery?

Stepping into e-waste? Applied Machinery can provide you with the right tools to turn waste electronics into value.

While e-waste recovery markets offer some challenges, recently this emerging market has offered several promising signs. For example, the world’s largest scrap metals processor, Sims Metal Management, reported that e-waste recovery was its fastest growing and most profitable division in 2015.

Meanwhile, both State Governments and the Commonwealth Government are stepping up to support this important marketplace. In Victoria, the State Government has promised a ban on e-waste from landfill - one of the strongest regulatory steps possible.

Meanwhile, the Commonwealth Government has promised to increase the national e-waste recovery target to 50% by 2016 - which translates into an additional 32,000 tonnes of material.

The national analogue television switch off (which concluded in 2013) produced a boom in material for processors. With technology moving quickly, what will be next?
