E-waste disposal process

Desco Electronic Recyclers is one of the biggest E-waste recyclers in South Africa and its operations extend across three of the four stages in the E-waste recycling value chain. The four stages of the E-waste recycling value chain are:

1)Collection or Delivery to Desco

2)Sorting and Dismantling of Waste Streams

3)Pre-Processing

4)Processing for Metals recovery (Refining) 

Desco has made great progress in advancing its pre-processing technology to physically upgrade recycled waste printed circuit boards (PCBs) into different fraction sizesof metallic concentrates. Desco is now looking to expand its technological capabilities to the fourth stage of the value chain by developing a metals recovery process for the PCB metallics.
