  1. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential densit ...
