【中/英】尋找在廢資訊物品中的貴重金屬

English Version:Looking for precious metals in discarded IT equipment

R妹:不知道上次回收的平板電腦,現在怎麼樣了

I wonder what happened to the tablet I recycled last time.

R哥:ㄟ~你也開始好奇回收後的流程啦,我想應該正在被拆解吧!

You are also getting curious about the recycling process, and I think it is being dismantled!

R妹:?

R哥:我來解釋給你聽。像電腦主機、可攜式電腦、平板電腦等資訊物品,回收流程就是很簡單的3個步驟:拆解、粉碎與分選,最後是精煉。

Let me explain it to you. For IT equipment such as PC cases, laptops, tablets, etc., the recycling process consists of four simple steps: dismantling, shredding, classification, and at last refining.  

廢資訊物品回收進場後,會先被拆解,分解為IC板等電子廢料、銅、鐵、鋁、塑膠。其中,IC板等電子廢料,進一步經粉碎、分選後,將分離出玻璃纖維樹脂粉、銅鐵、錫、鉛等金屬。最後,CPU處理器經精煉程序後,將可得出金、銀、鈀等貴金屬。

After the discarded IT equipment are recycled, they will be dismantled first and then classified into IC boards and other electronic wastes, copper, iron, aluminum, and plastic. Among them, IC boards and other electronic wastes will be further shredded and sorted, and then classified from fiberglass resin powder, copper iron, tin, lead, and other metals. At last, after the CPU has been refined, precious metals such as gold, silver, palladium, etc. can be extracted.

R妹:哦~原來身邊這些廢棄物品可是隱藏的寶藏呢!

Wow~The wastes around us are actually hidden treasures!

R哥:對呀,你有聽過都市礦山嗎?像東京奧運這次的獎牌就是使用再生製成的金屬呢。所以啊,只要把廢資訊物品好好回收,都能讓廢棄物有新的價值喔!

Have you ever heard of the “Urban Mine”? Medals in the Tokyo Olympics are made of recycled metal. Therefore, as long as the discarded IT equipment can be recycled properly, they will be something of value again!
