WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. In the Netherlands, a country with roughly 17 million inhabitants, every year more than 100 million kilograms of this material are being collected.
Due to the high levels of toxic substances found in electrical and electronic devices, WEEE legislation was implemented to regulate business operations and educate the general public on the importance of correct recycling procedures and use of suitable equipment. For this reason, Bronneberg’s comprehensive product range also includes machines for the processing of outdated and faulty electronic devices.
WEEE scrap roughly contains the following materials:
- Iron (30%)
- Non-ferrous metals (15%)
- Plastics (35%)
- Printed circuit boards (5%)
- Electric motors and cables (5%)
- Other materials, and batteries (10%)
