Companies that commission REMONDIS Electrorecycling to treat their small electronic appliances and consumer equipment achieve recycling rates that go far beyond the norm. We truly protect the environment. The majority of the processes we use to recycle small electronic appliances are mechanical; hazardous parts are removed by hand. The advantage of this system: unlike the conventional processes which involve the use of chemicals, our processes do not generate wastewater, incineration residue or other types of residual waste.
Hazardous parts are recovered manually
Our treatment processes are not only extremely cost effective, they are also highly efficient: our recycling rates for small electronic appliances are way above the legally prescribed minimum rate
Once the appliances have undergone an initial pre-shredding phase and been decontaminated using environmentally sound processes, they pass through several different process stages, some of which are manual and some automated. This highly efficient system generates impressive volumes of top quality raw materials: instead of simply fulfilling the prescribed minimum recycling rate of 50% for small electronic appliances, REMONDIS Electrorecycling recovers 75% of the material which it returns to production cycles. Unlike computers, keyboards and computer mice, computer monitors are treated on a separate dismantling line – to achieve perfect recycling results.
