Metso Outotec introduces leading-edge eScrap solutions to unlock electronic scrap

Metso Outotec is introducing a comprehensive eScrap solutions portfolio for the smelting and refining of e-scrap derived from Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

The solutions portfolio consists of Metso Outotec’s proven smelting, refining, hydrometallurgy, and gas-cleaning technologies, all contributing to the safe and profitable recycling of e-scrap.

E-scrap, consisting of printed circuit boards and electronic devices containing copper, gold, and other valuable metals, is one of the fastest growing waste streams worldwide. Rapid technological development, especially in information technology, is one of the drivers for this change.

Combined with the depletion of primary raw materials and the increasing complexity of e-scrap, the need for safe and environmentally friendly recycling and reuse of these valuable raw materials is of paramount importance.

It all starts from metallurgy

Metso Outotec’s sustainable eScrap solutions portfolio consists of complete process solutions and proprietary equipment to solve any e-scrap smelting challenge. The highly automated smelting solutions, complemented with highly efficient gas cleaning and wastewater treatment, comply with the strictest environmental regulations. Zero water discharge can also be provided as an option. The solutions are supported with in-house pilot testing and process modelling and are backed by process guarantees and advisory services.

“Process design for optimal efficiency, emissions control, and minimized energy use always starts from metallurgy – you need to understand the variability in the feed materials. At Metso Outotec, we have decades of technical expertise in dealing with diverse raw materials. Thanks to our state-of-the-art testing capabilities and proven references, we can provide an optimal process solution with high recovery and availability for a wide variety of secondary raw materials – all the way to the refined metal product,” says Lauri Närhi, Sales Director, Smelting at Metso Outotec.

“By helping to turn waste into valuable metals, our solutions help to take advantage of the exciting new opportunities being created now for the circular economy of today and the future. Metso Outotec is committed to the 1.5 °C journey in line with the Paris Agreement, and Planet Positive thinking is inherent in our eScrap offering.”
