CRT Monitor and Television Recycling
With the emergence of plasma and flat-screen technologies in the last 20 years, the production of these CRT monitors all over the world has ended. With this development, millions of CRT monitors have become waste. It is estimated that over 2 billion CRTs are still in use around the world, mostly in developing countries. These wastes are broken by hand disassembly method and only recyclable as possible. After the plastic, copper, and metal parts are removed, the tube part is thrown away or left to nature. After the CRT monitors and Television Recyclable parts are collected by licensed facilities the glass tube part is sent to the storage facilities as a whole.
While the raw materials such as plastic and copper are recovered as a result of the processing of CRTs, the glass tube part is divided into two and the phosphorus is cleaned and sent to battery recovery facilities to use the lead in its content.
CRT constitutes 85 percent of total devices by weight, and they contain some of the most harmful substances to human health such as lead, cadmium, and phosphorus in e-waste. A CRT monitor consists of 65 percent panel glass, 35 percent funnel glass, and 5 percent connecting glass. Approximately 1 -1.5 kg of lead is recovered from each CRT monitor or television.
We recycle old and idle CRT Monitors and televisions in our licensed facility, which operates under environmental legislation.
