ABSTRACT

Science & Tech Spotlight: Consumer Electronics Recycling   [open pdf - 299KB]

From the Document: "Consumer electronics contain critical materials whose supplies are limited, including gold, platinum, and rare earth metals. Domestic recycling of consumer electronics could extend the supply and reduce the current U.S. reliance on imports. New technologies are becoming available, but electronics recycling is complex and faces challenges, such as narrow profit margins."
