Electronic Scrap Recycling & Sorting

As various base and precious metals have continued to grow in value over the last decade, the demand for greater recycling and reclamation of these materials has also grown. Electronic scrap recycling is a continually expanding industry, as businesses from metal refiners to electronic manufacturers want to take advantage of the significantly lower cost of recycled electronic scrap metals as compared to the cost of mining, as well as the “greener” reputation any industrial metal user stands to gain by using recycled metal. Electronic scrap sorting and recycling requires fast, accurate methods of metal and alloy composition analysis, so that the right metals can be sorted, extracted, and recycled. Bruker handheld XRF analyzers are purpose-built for the electronic scrap recycling industry, with a variety of features that ensure the correct sorting of scrap electronic materials.
