Creating Resources from Waste
The new industry of creating commodities from the things we throw away
Today, more than ever, we need new and diverse programs to reclaim needed resources from our waste streams. In 2009, China imported more electronic waste than any other country. Most of this equipment was purchased from corporations and government agencies within the United States. Electronic waste must be recognized as the asset that it is. In the personal computer used by millions of Americans we find a list of reclaimable materials. The typical computer contains 12 pounds of steel, 2 pounds of high grade plastic, and 10 pounds of components. Computer components contain many highly regarded commodities including silver, gold, platinum, aluminum, and silicates. We generate nearly 4 million tons of ewaste annually that can be reclaimed and reused by American industry.
