Description

The volume of electronic waste is growing rapidly, resulting in a need to find suitable technologies for recycling and treatment of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Various approaches have been proposed and tested worldwide.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling, Aqueous Recovery Methods provides data regarding the implementation of aqueous methods of processing of WEEEs at the industrial level. The chapters explore points of view of worldwide researchers and research project managers with respect to new research developments and ways to improve these processing technologies.

Consequently, the text is divided in two parts. The first part addresses the new research regarding the hydrometallurgical procedures adopted from minerals processing technologies. The second part presents the green chemistry, bio-metallurgy applications for WEEE treatment and also the current developed aqueous methods at industrial scale. The book concludes with summaries of the research and suggestions for future actions.

Key Features

  • One-stop reference for hydrometallurgical processes of metal recovery from WEEE
  • Methods presented through intended applications including waste printed circuit boards, LCD panels, lighting and more
  • Suggestions and recommendations for future actions and research prospects

Readership

Researchers in materials engineering, chemical engineering, metallurgical engineering, electrical engineering, and environmental engineering focused on WEEE
