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.

By helping to turn waste into valuable metals, our solutions help to take advantage of the exciting new opportunities, created now for the circular economy today and in 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.
