Chinese delegates pay a visit to MDJ Light Brothers

A delegation of technical experts, business people and academics from China were given an insight into the world of MDJ Light Brothers, waste and WEEE recycling processor. The party comprised nine representatives from three Chinese Universities, the China Household Electrical Appliances Association (CHEAA), the Haier Group, the China Institute of Standarisation. According to MDJ Light Brothers China is one of the worlds biggest manufacturers of domestic and commercial electrical appliances, exporting millions of units to Europe each year. The delegation inspected the companys processing and recycling of cathode ray tubes, fridges and other electrical equipment, as well as the separation and processing of metals, plastics and other materials. Light Brothers national recycling manager Phil Burgon said: We were very happy to share our knowledge, expertise and opinion with this high-powered Chinese delegation. They seemed impressed by our use of technology, as well as good old-fashioned muscle power, to collect, sort, process, segregate and market recyclable materials. Reducing waste is a worldwide challenge, and Chinese manufacturers have a big role to play in adapting product design to make recycling easier and more efficient. I feel that there could be great standardisation of components in computers, as well as clearer identification of the different types of plastic that make up todays electrical and electronic equipment.
