Redemtech institutes new, enhanced
Redemtech announced it is implementing enhanced
recovery and reuse processes that will allow the company to salvage
components that would otherwise be scrapped, reducing e-waste volume
and increasing parts availability for refurbishing programs.
“One of the primary missions of our business
is to reduce the environmental and social impact of end-of-life
electronics,” said Robert Houghton, president and founder
of Redemtech. “These changes support that mission by ensuring
every usable component of an otherwise unusable computer system,
laptop or server is salvaged. Those components, in turn, support
refurbishing programs that promote reuse and extend equipment life.”
Redemtech processes more than 2 million assets
annually and will now approve only “combination” downstream
partners for e-waste processing.
Combination processors are able to provide both
de-manufacturing and shredding-separation-refining services so that
end-of-life materials have useful parts recovered before the balance
of materials are processed for final recycling. Redemtech has identified
five partners capable of meeting the new requirements, providing
the capacity required to make the change effective immediately.
