Printed circuit boards are considered extremely important products by recycling organizations. The reason is that the boards are designed with a variety of valuable materials. A few examples include solder, gold, nickel, tin metal, palladium, and different types of copper (oxide, hydroxide, and sulfate solutions). Also, many PCB liquids like strong inks and acids are considered hazardous under environmental regulations. Hence, it is important to properly recycle printed circuit boards.
Just as the manufacturing process is a detailed one, the PCB recycling process comprises different stages. As it will not be possible to explain every process in one post, we are providing you a series of posts, which will elucidate on the different stages of the PCB recycling process.
A printed circuit board comprises avariety of expensive components, as well as hazardous substances. Theseneed to be separated from the PCB to ensure that the components can berecycled and reused. The following points elaborate the steps todismantle a PCB.
With these steps, the first stage of thePCB recycling process is complete. In the next post, we will elaborateon the different processes used to recycle chemicals within a PCB.
