The rapidity with which the technological innovation is carried out has unleashed that the devices are discarded with the same promptness because they become obsolete in a very short time, producing in this way a new waste: electronic waste or e-waste, which is identified as all that waste from electronic or electrical devices such as computers, cell phones and televisions, among others.
This material, if not handled correctly, reaches nature and contaminates it.
Every day there are thousands of new electronic devices that displace others that, when considered obsolete, are discarded unconsciously in the trash or accumulated without care to prevent them from continuing to contaminate.
It is important to avoid the temptation to change our gadgets every time a newer version comes out. Many times we do it only in response to an advertising campaign, since we do not need the features included in the new version.
Technological recycling is the way to dispose of and take advantage of electronic equipment that is no longer useful, there are companies like GREEN TEKSOLUTIONS LLC that are dedicated to recycling technology following a simple process.
Collection: The collection is carried out with well-trained personnel familiar with all kinds of technological materials, capable of identifying the dangerous components and making an adequate handling to avoid spills or dangerous ruptures.
Classification: The materials are classified mainly into two groups
This classification is carried out to facilitate the disassembly and prevent the glass elements from breaking and releasing dangerous substances if they contain them.
Mechanical separation: This separation is the division of materials in each of its components. At the same time, two groups of materials, metals and plastics are derived.
Thermal Separation: This is necessary to homogenize and reduce the volume occupied by the plastic, which facilitates its storage and transport, and is necessary to be used by the machinery that will transform it into a new article.
It is time to realize that we can make a difference by recycling our technology properly and not just throw it away in the trash basket.
