Plasma principal advantages for electronic waste recycling

Leveraging our experience in delivering state-of-the-art smelting facilities, our customers can rest-assured that they’re working with an established industry leader with a deep understanding of e-waste recovery management. Tetronics not only ensures high-value recovery of precious metals and gold recovery from electronic waste, but also provides the practical experience and the technical capability required to eliminate the hazardous materials it contains. In doing so, the electronic waste recycling recovery process holds exceptional environmental and commercial credentials.

How do we do it?

In combination, the heat and ultra-violet light properties of Tetronics’ plasma technology are designed to smelt and preferentially separate the precious metals contained with the electronics waste, whilst destroying any hazardous elements. The remaining waste material is then vitrified into resalable building product called Plasmarok® – in doing so, contributing further to natural resource conservation.
