Waste of office equipment, transformers, capacitors

Recycling of office equipment, transformers and capacitors is a complex multi – stage process. Many organizations face the problem of recycling such waste. This is primarily due to the fact that such waste after its service life can not just be thrown into the landfill, as they contain harmful and toxic substances. Therefore, only a clear adherence to all points of the process of disposal of such waste contributes to the protection of the environment and the production of valuable raw materials.

- recycling of office equipment -

Office equipment, which is now available in large quantities in every office, is a source of hazardous chemicals for the environment and human health. Thus, office equipment is characterized by the presence of mercury, arsenic, cadmium, zinc, Nickel and other elements.

As part of the old and non-working office equipment there are materials belonging to different classes of danger. For example, one device may combine parts that subsequently represent hazard class I waste (small mercury lamp) and class V waste (ferrous metals). At the same time, according to FKKO - waste of the most common types of office equipment (scanners, printers, MFPs, phones, Fax machines, projectors, etc.) belong to the IV (low-risk) class.

Since the waste of office equipment can belong to the I-V hazard classes, the organizations involved in recycling, it is necessary to have not only a License for waste management activities, but also A certificate of the assay chamber ("jewelry license") due to the fact that office equipment contains precious metals.
The process of recycling office equipment is very difficult and time-consuming, so the organizations involved in this activity, high requirements. And specialists of LLC Ekouniversal have high qualification in the field of the treatment of similar waste.

- disposal of transformers and capacitors -

Placement of power transformers and capacitors after the expiration of the service life on the landfills is prohibited, as they contain harmful substances, so their disposal is necessary. The dielectric liquid contained in transformers and capacitors is composed of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) or biphenyls (PCBs), which can cause significant environmental damage.

Methods of disposal of transformers with PCB's, used in OOO "Ekouniversal", in the General case consists of 6 stages:
- Draining and removal of the bulk of the dielectric fluid.
- Cleaning the condenser with a special solution.
- Removal and elimination of the device in the burial.
- Elimination of the special solution.
- Additional cleaning of the body from the remains of dielectric liquids.
- Removal of the body of the capacitor.
At the same time, the following methods of utilization of used dielectric liquids are used:
- burial at the landfill-the main way;
- thermal method;
- plasma technology;
- chemical method;
- biology method.
