Reducing E-Waste: No Longer Mission Impossible?

Recycling electronics is essential. So read quickly. That’s because this message will self-destruct in five seconds. No seriously.

So let’s talk about recycling electronics being essential! So Researchers at the University of Illinois are developing electronics components that can destroy themselves when heated. They’ve also created a radio-controlled trigger to remotely start the reaction.

It sounds like a high-tech spy device right out of Mission Impossible. I mean look at my friends at Those guys are knee deep in the recycling and waste components to our supply chain. As they say, with just one call they can have any waste matter dealt with. Especially and most importantly in a safe and cost-effective manner. We make sure to take care of all of the details from point a to point b, so you can focus on your business while we handle everything else.

However the idea behind the research is to put a dent in the global effort. All to make recycling electronics essential from our waste stream.

Not Mission Impossible!

The team argues that making components that can be quickly degraded is essential. Then this will let manufacturers like my buddies at care! But really folks, we can recycle electronics and make it become essential to their business. All because materials from used equipment have gold. Therefore then they place the tech into new devices.

As I’ve written, the United States generates almost 2.5 million tons of electronic waste per year. Moreover that number will only grow. So used electronics have materials in them that can be recovered and recycled. All by reducing the economic costs and environmental impacts of what we buy.

So we must work more repurposing or safely disposing of cell phones. That’s as well as computers and other devices. The ones we also use every day. Then all the while helping to build a robust market. A market as a result for electronics recycling in the United States.

As the volume of used electronics continues to grow in the U.S. and the world. Also has the importance of safely managing and recycling used electronics. Electronics are made of valuable resources. That’s such as precious metals, copper, plastic and glass. Then all of which require energy to mine and manufacture.

In conclusion, recycling or reusing these electronics conserves these materials. Finally and prevents greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution.
