The term “e-waste” has raised awareness of environmental problems caused by electronic waste while also spurring on the government and industries to adopt concrete measures to handle the issue. Nevertheless, e-waste is actually not garbage, and if the resource content of reusable e-waste were to be observed, it would more be more accurate to consider it as a type of resource.
Kenny Hsu, Managing Director of Uwin Nanotech pointed out that “rather than being called trash, e-waste should be called by a term that means a resource, and that term is e-resources.”
UWin Nanotech is an environmentally-friendly precious-metals stripping solutions provider which specializes in hydrometallurgy environmentally-friendly precious-metals solutions, including green metals-stripping soaking formulas and automatic precious-metals stripping platforms. These solutions can meet the precious metals-stripping requirements of enterprises with wide variety scales and forms, and they are currently being utilized by several international companies. In addition, they have the capacity to handle precious metals such as gold, silver, tin, and palladium.
In fact, this new terminology will bring about a transformation in the way that entire industries and markets think about e-waste treatment, and it may even change people's attitudes towards the recycling of electronic waste. In the past people had a passive attitude about the implementation of e-waste treatment; however, if people switched to a more proactive attitude and even actively created a concept of using it to create wealth, it would lead to people around the world paying more comprehensive attention to e-waste.
Viewed in terms of current development trends, this movement of changing waste materials into resources is increasingly apparent. Apple is anticipating launching a mobile phone made entirely from recycled materials, and at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, the prize medals will be made from precious metals which were recycled from mobile phone and 3C products.
Furthermore, in addition to launching wearable jewelry products made from recycled materials, Dell will also launch computers made from recycled materials, and in Taiwan Asus is in the process of gradually planning to adopt the use of recycled materials and launch environmentally-friendly computer products.
