About

Pyrocycle developed a patent-pending, cost-effective, environmentally friendly thermochemical process for recycling E-waste without toxic emissions or landfill, by recovering the base metals like copper and the precious metals like Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium and also by decontaminating the plastics that contain high levels of toxic halogenated flame retardants, whose releases cause environmental and human health concerns, and transform it to value-added products. In this way, we avoided the carcinogen character of these materials, and we closed the loop by turning scrap phones and PCs into valuable resources.
