ForensisGroup Electronic Waste or E-Waste Expert Witnesses study the practices for the final disposal of end-of-life electronic equipment and its impacts on human health and the environment.
Also called Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), this term is used to describe old, end-of-life, or discarded electrical appliances, such as:
- Consumer electronics,
- LCD and CRT screens
- PC monitors
- Other related appliances
Under a broader definition, refrigerators, microwaves, and air conditioners are also in this category.
In addition to many potentially harmful substances, these products contain the following:
- Precious metals
- Flame retarded plastics
- CFC foams
Our e-waste experts study the effects that substances from these products like lead, mercury, and cadmium have on the soil and water.
They work with the detoxication process in recycling to remove critical components to avoid dilution of and/or contamination with toxic substances during the downstream processes.
These critical components include the following:
- Lead glass
- CFC gases
- Light bulbs
These professionals also manage the mechanical processing of shredding and are well-versed in all aspects of industrial large scale operations to obtain concentrates of recyclable materials and to separate hazardous materials.
They are in charge of the following:
- Crushing units
- Magnetic- and eddy-current- and air-separators
They also work in e-waste recycling refining, where secondary raw materials are sold or disposed of, analyzing metals, plastics and glass.
