Unlike the glass shelves in fridges or the glass windows in washing machine doors, cathode ray tubes (CRT) are a huge challenge to dismantle – especially those in old TVs and computer monitors. The reason for this is because most of the hazardous parts in such appliances are located all around the CRT. In addition, the CRT itself has various parts containing toxic compounds and has a highly complex design. We ensure they are professionally dismantled. The recovered glass components are then sent on to recycling facilities for further processing.
The CRTs are kept in a permanently moist atmosphere to prevent emissions of heavy metals
Not always obvious at first glance: glass can be found in many types of waste electrical and electronic equipment. We recover it so it can be sent on to glass recycling facilities – always, of course, observing the highest of safety standards to protect human health and the environment.
