It is a first world problem – what to do with your old electronics when you upgrade? Stick them in a drawer or toss them in the bin? In our gadget-obsessed society, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is one of the fastest growing waste streams. Every year millions of tonnes of electronics…

The objective of the method was to prove the concept of a novel waste PCBs recycling process which uses inert, stable molten salts as the direct heat transfer fluid and, simultaneously, uses this molten salt to separate the metal products in either liquid (solder, zinc, tin, lead, […]
