Electric waste is a treasure in the wrong place, which can be the regenerated resources through scientific processing. Like the electric parts, chips and noble metal in cell phone, they all can be reused. The value of electric waste recycling and reuse is mainly reflected in two aspects. First one, the composition of electronic waste being complex and badly harmful to environment, reasonable dismantling of electronic waste is beneficial to environmental protection. Secondly, through recycling and reuse the electric waste, the demand for primary resources is reduced for energy saving and emission reduction and production cost reduction.

Professor Jinhui Li introduced there are 109 authorized electric waste recycling and treatment enterprises right now. While due to the dispersion of recycling channels, these electric waste recycling and treatment enterprises cannot be full load operation. The capacity of electric waste treatment cannot meet the market’s demand due to the following two reasons. First, the recycling system is not perfect to cause the recycling price on the low side. Second, the unauthorized companies recycled most of the electric waste.
