PCB The Hidden Treasure
Most printed circuit boards are made from fiberglass or plastic, non-ferrous metal, and other recyclable materials. Gold is one of the most commonly found precious metals in integrated circuit boards, as it is an excellent conductor of electricity and is highly resistant to corrosion.
Additionally, printed circuit boards may also contain other valuable metals – silver, platinum, palladium, copper and nickel – that can be extracted from them and reused to make a variety of new products, including circuit boards.
Certified and credible e-waste recycling companies have emerged these years, they typically use internationally accepted methods of processing PCBs, which means they’re sent to specialized smelters to recover precious metals. So, you can take your electronic waste for safe recycling.
