Contain more than 50 metals in a plastic container. Discover how it is recovered!


From a bioleaching process, i.e. the extraction of metals through the use of living organisms, in this case bacteria, metals can be recovered from printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Recovery Centers involved in the process
