E-waste – a source of raw materials
Recyclables in high demand
The recycling of used electronic appliances is one of the largest growth markets in the global waste management industry - hardly surprising, given how many valuable raw materials are found in computers, TV sets and other such devices. Old mobile phones, for example, are a true treasure trove of materials, including gold, silver, palladium, platinum, copper and cobalt.
Comprehensive expertise in waste electrical and electronic equipment
The EC Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment requires manufacturers to dispose of used electrical and electronic appliances in an environmentally friendly way. Throughout Germany, ALBA Group experts take these appliances back and handle initial processing, such as dismantling and the removal of harmful substances. This is followed by further recycling, carried out in compliance with all relevant laws and deadlines.
We extract and market valuable raw materials from electrical and electronic waste, in addition to offering environmentally friendly, compliant waste disposal services for manufacturers. If you would like to know more, just get in touch.
