Dissolving Circuit Boards for Easier Electronics Recycling

Recycling and buy cheap levitra online reusing electronic components could be made much easier with a new polymer that produces a circuit board that will dissolve when immersed in hot water. The circuit board was developed by the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) as part of the ReUSE (Reuseable, Unzippable, Sustainable Electronics) project.

The circuit board material is hardy enough to buy now viagra withstand ordinary heat and moisture, but full immersion in hot water acts to release the components from the http://www.barefootfoundation.com/levitra-discount board. This allows for over 90% of the electronics materials to be recovered, whereas typically less than 2% of the materials on a circuit board are re-used.

Although this is not necessarily beneficial for the repairability of electronics, it could be a definite improvement in helping get a handle on the growing mountains of electronics waste and make recycling of electronics components and recovery of http://jesperoffice.com/viagra-soft-generic minerals an easier process.

As typical of Ecogeek, there is no technical information at all - just fluff.

I doubt that this material would be any good at all for RF (radio frequency) PCBs since it absorbs water. It would have helped if EcoGeek published the dielectric data for this material and how it compares with the industry standard FR4 material.

Assuming it is no good for RF applications, this would mean that it would not be suitable mobile phones, high speed digital boards and television circuits.

This type of board is truly beneficial reusing electronics components & Eco-Friendly as well.
But instead of hot water there should be any other dis-solvent that will work for RF PCBs also, because today the RF PCBs are world dominating today & they need more attention.

The article provides sources. If you want to know about the industry specs, then you can certainly find them.

The articles on cheap viagra pills this site are organized for the purpose of informing the lowest price viagra online readership of a broad spectra of environmental developments. It is not a scientific journal, nor should it be treated as one.

When in doubt, don't forget to be awesome.

Recycled my first commercial transmitter in 1953 and I've found recycling of electronics, since then, to be very manpower intensive for relatively little return. The 450 kg (1200 lb) weight of cialis canada online pharmacy the rig yielded, about 135 kg (300 lb) of lead sheath and copper wire, 45 kg (100 lb) of fancy aluminum pieces, six heavy power transformers, a couple of buckets full of real neat hardware, and several garbage cans full of trash.

Today, few of the items obtainable from any individual printed circuit board have any great value. However, many kilos of PCBs have recycle value. Machinery and cheap viagra pills processes evolved over the years to efficiently extract the values from bulk PCBs. Just about any PCB can just be thrown into the mix and processed.

New machinery and techniques should be investigated such as water soluable PCBs in order to buy branded cialis attain a better way to recycle.

Recycling Printed Circuit Boards
written by Computer Recycling Thetford, January 03, 2013
This will certainly make work a lot easier. As a highly experienced member of the recycling industry, I can honestly say that not having to deal with shredders, furnances and electrolysis in the recycling of printed circuit boards would be a godsend. It's such as a messy job and there's a health risk assoicated with the boards themselves- they're currently a fibre based epoxy board, which when shredded releases a dust and with the silver and other heavy metals that have historically been used in the components, this would mean that we could just melt away the underlying structure of the boards, leaving only the components and tracks, which could then be smelted and www.hasselaar.nl refined, without the tramadol cod overnight need for a shredder.

I will try this idea for my research project about circuit board.
