It's a Toxic World Out There!
In 2015 alone, California diverted 2.5 billion pounds of e-waste to developing countries.
E-waste represents 2% of America's trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of our overall toxic waste.
50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year.
Only 12.5% of e-waste is currently recycled.
For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs of copper, 772 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, and 33 lbs of palladium can be recovered.
Approximately 350,000 mobile phones are disposed of each day, according to the EPA. That equates to more than 152 million phones thrown away every year. That's roughly $200 million dollars in gold alone.
Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.
E-waste is still the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America, according to the EPA.
It takes 530 lbs of fossil fuel, 48 lbs of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water to manufacture one computer and monitor.
Recycling circuit boards can be more valuable than mining ore. One ton of circuit boards is estimated to contain 40-800 times more gold than one metric ton of ore.
We are currently accepting partnerships for our 2017 launch!
Camston recovers precious metals and polymer plastics from electronic waste using a proprietary non-toxic green technology transforming end-of-life bits into tomorrow’s atoms.
Existing technologies to extract precious metals use highly toxic chemicals or large non-scalable furnaces that produce secondary Green House Gas emissions. Current technologies underserve the market, processing only 6.5M of the 50M metric tons generated every year. A market opportunity exists to exploit this processing gap through green localized processing, thereby reducing GHG emissions and improving sustainability in a circular economy.
Camston has developed a proprietary and stress tested recovery process that captures more than 98% of the precious metal value contained in e-waste quickly and efficiently using a low cost, eco-safe and highly scalable process.
We are currently accepting partnership opportunities for our 2017 launch. If your company has a resource recovery need, drop us a line and we'll get right back to you.
