What is WEEE Recycling?
WEEE recycling refers to the recycling of electronic and electrical equipment with a plug or batteries. In the years past, there were no laws pertaining to the recycling of electronic equipment and devices. WEEE became law in 2006, so electronics began to bear the crossed-out bin symbol to indicate how they should be disposed of. It is possible to classify any WEEE item as WEEE if it has reached the end of its useful life, whether it is a household item or not.
The amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (often referred to as WEEE or e-waste) created in the EU each year is rapidly increasing. It’s presently one of the most rapidly expanding waste sources. WEEE regulations in the EU aim to promote sustainable production and consumption. They address environmental and other challenges that have arisen as a result of the EU’s growing amount of abandoned gadgets.
How is Plastic Waste Recycled?
The management of WEEE is complicated, since it includes a variety of items, such as mechanical equipment and fully interconnected systems like computers and cellphones. Various forms of WEEE must be collected and separated in order to ensure the proper handling and disposal of waste. It is simple to reduce the number of tons of electrical waste that go to landfills each year by understanding what WEEE is as well as how to dispose of that waste.
In the first section of the machine, the waste electrical equipment is loaded onto a big conveyor belt, which then loads it into the next section. In the machine, links create an air vortex that catapults the components against each other, separating them from one another. Once the equipment has been broken down into smaller pieces, it exits the machine onto another conveyor belt for the next stage. Waste products and hazardous components like batteries are manually picked off the conveyor belt via a picking line before being sent for further processing.
In the whole procedure, only this portion is not automated. The material can now be fed into the shredder, which then shreds it into small, manageable pieces after it has been refined to remove any contaminants. A series of magnets and air flow systems are then used to automatically separate the shredded pieces by material type. Metals, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, are separated and stored separately in bins, bags, and skips according to the commodity. During the deconstruction process, the entire machine was disassembled, broken down, sanitised, shredded, and then cleaned for reuse. Following the shipment, the materials are treated and repurposed for use in production.
