E-WASTE Electronics, as we know, are complex devices made of various materials. Some of the constituents such as lead, nickel, cadmium, mercury etc., if mismanaged at the end of its lifespan, could pose risks to human life and harms the environment.

E-WASTE RECYCLING

PROCESS DESCRIPTION OF E-WASTE MANAGEMENT The main process begins with collection, disassembly, reuse and recycling of discarded electronic equipment in an environmentally friendly manner.

SORTING AND DISMANTLING This is the main process in E-Waste Management from the material input. The storage materials are segregated by their nature defined as plastic materials, metals, glass and tubes. Sorting of plastic items, sorting of copper scraps, coil and windings, sorting of the printed circuit board for recycling/discarding/ shredding, sorting of cable scrapes, sorting of film scraps, sorting of glass items, sorting of cathode ray tubes and sorting of metals.

PROCESSING Remanufacturing technologies are then adopted for processing the materials. The main goal is refurbishing and refusing all the sub-components which can be recovered.

PLASTIC COMPONENTS Generally, the plastic components can be segregated at source, but the separation is done inside the premises for identification and testing. There is an estimated 72% of mixed plastic that may be the input, and the same is allowed for density separation through the sink and float and then allowed for identification and testing. Segregated plastics will then be shredded and recycled.

METAL COMPONENTS The dry mechanical process allowed for the separation of the metals cannot be segregated manually. The metals attached with other materials will be allowed for pulverising or grinding and then allowed for magnetic separation. The air pollution control is allotted by a cyclone separator and a baghouse. The manual separation is done through the soft equipment.

TUBE PROCESSING The Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT) will be dismantled and broken manually through the specially designed cabinet, and the components will be separated. The gas from the picture tube of computers and televisions are separated carefully by the air sucking technology in a closed system. A dry process system will remove the other contents and pollutants.

GLASS PROCESSING The glass is crushed in a closed mechanical system then cleaned, screened and allowed for recycling.

RECYCLINGAll the segregated components is stored in a separate place after processing. The stored material is sent to metal recover units under its categories. Precious elements such as Iron, Aluminum, Copper, Plastics, and Glasses are recovered and recycled.

POLLUTION CONCERENEDNo water pollution or air pollution will be allowed through the entire process.
