WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
) are among the most popular kind of waste: smartphones, tablets, computers
, etc. They fill our everyday life and have a very short life.
They are mainly made of non-biodegradable
substances that can damage the environment. If not disposed of, they can cause environmental pollution with effects also on human health.
D.Lgs. 49/2014 about WEEE has provided that all electrical and electronic devices should not be disposed of in the normal urban solid waste stream, but should follow a collection, recovering and recycling
of the materials of which they are composed.
Cabro S.p.A. recovers and recycles precious metals such as Gold, Silver and Palladium
used to make electronic circuits and hardware components, bringing them to new life and using them as their starting elements for the production of galvanic salts, decorative items, nanoproducts and conductive pastes.
Recovery of these materials, currently possible with eco-sustainable and low costs methods, is a green solution to WEEE disposal and at the same time a valuable source of recovery.
