Confront the Challenge!

¤  E-Waste is the fastest growing waste stream, driven by: §  Rapid advancement in technology §  Greater adoption of electronics §  Very low current recycling rates §  Growing data security risks §  Environmental legislation and

CSR §  Hi value component materials

Volume (Million Cu. Ft.), World Markets

Ewaste Categories

The WEEE directive sets a total of 10 categories of WEEE for reporting purposes.

1.  Large household appliances 2.  Small household appliances 3.  IT and telecommunications equipment 4.  Consumer equipment 5.  Lighting equipment 6.  Electrical and electronic tools 7.  Toys, leisure and sports equipment 8.  Medical devices 9.  Monitoring and control instruments 10. Automatic dispensers

Impact of CRT Waste Materials

q Average TV contains 5 Kg leaded glass and additional leaded based coating Lead coating is Water Soluble! 1 Kg of lead oxide (PbO2) per TV

q Adult Health concerns raised when PbO2 blood levels reach 300 µg / litre. One TV can raise health concerns in 606,000 people

q Child Health concerns raised when PbO2 blood levels reach 100 µg / Litre. One TV can raise health concerns in 1,800,000 children

Impact of CRT Waste Materials

Page 6: Technology Lifecycle Recycling Challenges

CRT Disposal Estimated (US Only)

q The US EPA has projected CRT Device Management as follows:

q Current stockpile of collected CRT 330,000 Tons

q Reaching End of Life 2013 ~ 2023 5,900,000 Tons

q Reaching End of Life 2023 ~ 2033 1,000,000 Tons

q The EPA figures only account for USA estimates

q The EPA figures are for CRT/TV volumes sold since 1980.

q The CRT disposal of leaded glass began to accumulate in 1950.

q Thera are no estimates for the previous 30 year period.

Landfill Challenge

q Landfill locations have expected lifecycle of 50 years

q Many landfills have been in operation for longer than expected lifecycle q Concentrated waste materials can be accumulating at the lowest levels of the landfill and will eventually leach into the soil and water table

q Monitoring of the early use of landfill was not a consideration

q Natural disasters have complicated the landfill problem. Flooding River systems have contaminated significant areas surrounding the Landfill. Earthquakes can rupture the landfill insulation linings

New Marketing Phenomenon ¤  EOL – End Of Life

¤  Once meant that a device no longer worked

¤  Once meant that a device no longer performed the required function for user

¤  Discarded only for Recycling or Trash delivered to Landfill

¤  Heavier, Slower Technologies

Page 10: Technology Lifecycle Recycling Challenges

New Marketing Phenomenon ¤  OOS – Out of Style

¤  Still Fully Functional

¤  Still meets the requirements of the User / Consumer

¤  Maintains High Resale, Reuse Value

¤  Maintains Social Reuse Value

¤  Offers Recycler significant Return On Investment

Page 11: Technology Lifecycle Recycling Challenges

New Recycling Processes ¤  Old Recycling Methods

¤  Separate Components at Collection Point

¤  Key boards in one pile

¤  Power cords, Etc in one pile for reclaiming copper

¤  Separate Monitor into one plie

¤  Laptop Power Supply in one pile

¤  Remove Battery for delivery to Battery Recycler

¤  New Recycling Practices

¤  Maintain Components together for initial review of Resale, Reuse, & Repair

¤  Inspect Equipment for Functionality

¤  Maximum Return of Value

¤  Maximum Value to Society
