End of Life Electronics: Optimizing Critical and Strategic Metals Recovery Through Circular Economy Approaches

Across the world, there are mounting concerns that the current state of End-of-Life Electronics (EOLE) waste has enormous economic, environmental, and social costs, and at the same time represents significant potential for economic gains. In Canada, an estimated 150,000 tonnes of electronic scrap are collected annually, up to half of which is ferrous and nonferrous metals. Furthermore, up to 69 elements from the periodic table can be found in electrical and electronic equipment, including precious metals and strategically important ‘critical minerals.’ Some of these minerals have few substitutes and their supply is at risk, so their recovery from EOLE streams should be a strategic priority in the North American market.
