It's important to recycle electronic components

With the continuous development of science and technology, the demand for electronic components required by artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things era is growing, which promotes the rapid development of electronic manufacturing. Development always bring some advantages and disadvantages. The rapid development of electronics industry, to some extent,it will accelerate the mass production of electronic waste.

How does the accumulation of electronic components waste affect us?

The chemical elements contained in electronic components are very complicated. More than half of the metal elements contained in electronic components are harmful to the human body, and some are even highly toxic.
For example, a computer has more than 700 components, half of which contain mercury, arsenic, chromium and other toxic chemicals; electronic products such as televisions, refrigerators, and mobile phones also contain heavy metals such as lead, chromium, and mercury; Toners such as toner in printers and copiers are harmful to humans.

ExcessChip Technology will introduce important toxic metal elements for you to prevent poisoning accidents when dealing with metal elements.

The harmful effects of lead-lead have long been known to us. In some countries in the 1970s, the addition of lead to gasoline was banned. Lead can damage people's central nervous system, blood system, kidney and reproductive system, and it will have a negative impact on children's brain development. Lead can accumulate in the environment, which has a negative impact on animals, plants and microorganisms. The main lead-containing parts in the computer are: the glass screen of the computer monitor (1.4~3.5 kg/each display), the soldering of the circuit board or other components.

Cadmium-cadmium compounds are also very harmful to humans and accumulate in the body, especially in the kidneys. Cadmium is contained in the following components, SMD resistors, infrared generators, semiconductors, etc. Cadmium is also a curing agent for plastics, which is also contained in old cathode ray tubes.

Mercury - Mercury can cause damage to many organs, including the brain, kidneys, and ovaries. More seriously, the development of the fetus is quite sensitive to the mercury that the mother passes. When inorganic mercury is spilled into water, it is converted to methylmercury at the bottom. Methylmercury is easily accumulated in the body and is enriched through the food chain. It is estimated that 22% of the world's annual mercury consumption is used in electrical and electronic products. It is used in thermometers, sensors, retarders, converters (such as In circuit boards and measuring devices), medical equipment, electric lights, mobile phones and batteries.

Hexavalent chromium - hexavalent chromium is still used for rust prevention and strengthening and beautification of steel sheets. It easily passes through the cell membrane and is absorbed, which has a toxic effect on the contaminated cells. Hexavalent chromium also damages DNA and is a chemical element that is extremely toxic in the environment.

E-waste contains a variety of hazardous substances, so it cannot be simply sent to a waste incinerator for incineration. In addition, electronic waste also contains parts that can be recycled and reused, and is classified as recyclable waste. Recycling can be turned into waste. Through manual dismantling and mechanical disassembly and sorting, the comprehensive treatment of e-waste will not only protect the natural environment, but also recycle and reuse certain resources to achieve the goal of reducing component manufacturing costs.
Processing electronic waste requires a certain amount of technical content. As a complex of resources, e-waste contains many precious resources. The reuse and recycling of e-waste is an important way to solve problems such as resource shortage and environmental pollution. By improving resource utilization and turning waste into treasure, we will give full play to the role of various types of waste resources, including e-waste.
In foreign countries, the treatment of e-waste is a highly professional and highly technical work; some large enterprises such as Dell and Hewlett-Packard have established relatively complete recycling systems, but the proportion is extremely small. Because these large companies have their core business, it is difficult to focus on the recycling of electronic components.

As can be seen from the above, electronic component waste will have a negative impact on the environment in which we live and on the health of human beings. In fact, at the commercial level, excessive electronic component waste will affect the economic development, if a certain electronic sales Component companies have too many electronic sluggish materials, which will affect the company's cash flow and operating rate, resulting in a lot of waste of resources.

Therefore, the recycling of electronic components inventory is very important.

In addition, it is also important to develop a group of professional recycling electronic components inventory companies. This maximizes recycling and takes full advantage of resources. In addition, dealing with excess electronic inventory issues will also bring great benefits. 

There are many types of recyclable electronic products, which can be roughly divided into two categories: one is a waste electronic product that contains relatively simple materials and is less harmful to the

environment, such as refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, and other household appliances, as well as medical and scientific research appliances. Etc., the disassembly and handling of such products is relatively simple; the other is the waste electronic products that are more complex and have a greater environmental hazard, such as computers, various types of integrated circuit boards, various ICs, capacitors, etc.
As far as I know, ExcessChip Technology is a company dedicated to the professional recycling of electronic components inventory, to purchase customers' excess electronic inventory for the international market, the company has extensive experience in electronic device inventory recycling, and a comprehensive inventory recycling system.

ExcessChip Technologies primarily recycles types of electronics as follows:

ExcessChip Technology said that the electronic component inventory recycling industry will attract tremendous development. He is very confident in the development of the inventory industry.The manager said that we welcome customers to sell excess inventory of electronic components to us.
