Activities:

Public Campaign - Social media

Description: Votechnik will run a social media campaign on the recovery of rare materials contained in small electronic devices. The campaign will focus on Indium, a rare material found as indium tin oxide in most devices that have an LCD screen, small and big – mobile phones, tablets, ipads etc, and not only in large LCD TVs and flat panel computer monitors. Due to the scarcity of Indium and supply chain dependencies to the main producer (China), it is important that all LCD display devices, big and small, are recycled correctly, so that LCD panels do not end up in landfill, allowing for processes to be developed for Indium recovery.

Votechnik is not only providing state-of-the-art large LCD panel processing and depollution equipment, Votechnik is also working with an international consortium to develop such Indium recovery processes. To keep in touch about these issues and to follow the progress Votechnik is making towards Indium recovery and all matters of LCD TV recycling, please follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and sign up to our newsletter at votechnik.com.
