Title

Recycling of Electronic Wastes: Degradation and Combustion

Abstract

In this paper, firstly recycling methods of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) were briefly reviewed. Then PCB materials from a waste printer and waste TV were heated in TG/DTA and MS machines with the aim of separating and recovering the organic and metallic materials. The effects of top temperature, holding time, gas flow rate, heating rate were investigated. Synthetic air and argon were used as working gases respectively. The mass loss, conversion fraction with the temperature, reaction temperature and activation energy were summarized.
