e-waste Recycling Process in Bangladesh
Steps of the e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh
We know about an electronic device that contains a variety of materials including plastics, glass, metal, copper, iron, and many other things that require several steps to separate these resources in an efficient manner.
As e-waste is very sensitive to the human body so it requires a very perfect set up to handle the process. In general, both manual labor and automation are involved during the electronic waste recycling process. We have to use some automated equipment during the e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh which helps to efficiently separate reusable materials and eliminates hazardous waste and protects workers and the environment.
Step 1: Manual sorting and separation
Azizu Recycling & E-waste Company gathers & stores All e-waste items manually. After gathering e-waste we use some automated equipment to crush and we do not involve humans to separate such as batteries, UPS battery systems, toner cartridges, and fluorescent lights.
Step 2: Shredding
Shredding is the second stage where e-waste is sent to shred the big items into small 100mm size pieces and after this small pieces are shredded for the smallest pieces for the purpose of separating materials. Azizu Recycling & E-waste company ltd has the latest setup to deal with the e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh.
Any dust extracted during this process is disposed of using environmentally-friendly methods.
Step 3: Magnetic removal
Azizu Recycling & E-waste company ltd is also configured a magnetic remover where Steel and iron fragments are removed by magnets and smoothen the e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh.
Step 4: Metallic and nonmetallic separation
At this stage, all other metals, such as aluminum, copper, and brass are separated from non-metallic materials, such as glass and plastic things very perfectly.
Here Azizu Recycling & e-waste company ltd has a proper system for Separating things through Eddy currents, optical identification, and magnets to ensure the e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh.
Step 5: Separation by water
In our premise, all plastic and glass are separated by using water for a secure e-waste recycling process in Bangladesh. Because Lead-containing glass may be sent to lead smelters to be used to make new products such as batteries, new CRTs, and x-ray shields.
Azizu Recycling & e-waste company separates Plastics by color and sold to plastic recyclers.
