Trials in Swindon aim to stop e-waste epidemic by recovering valuable metals

Tetronics are currently working on a project with Innovate UK to help stop the growing e-waste epidemic in the UK. The project will turn your old electronic devices into value by extracting precious metals such as gold and silver and other valuable metals such as copper and tin.

After extensive planning and development at the Tetronics trials facility in Swindon, they have successfully completed the first of four plasma trials. The trial involved printed circuit boards from the electronic waste that had been pre-calcined, being fed into the Tetronics plasma furnace to separate the valuable precious metals and other metals that are hidden inside.
