LCD recycler is proven

A partnership of researchers, recyclers and engineers are using their expertise to solve Europe’s liquid crystal display (LCD) stockpiling issue.

LCDs are subject to the WEEE Directive which stipulates that mercury and liquid crystals must be removed, so it is essential that they are treated correctly.

A commercial full-scale unit has been developed across a three-year project called ReVolv, by a consortium led by Votechnik and the University of Limerick.

The fully automated Votechnik ALR 3000 processes 60 LCD screens an hour and is modular for scalability. It removes components containing hazardous substances from LCDs, and presents separate fractions of non-hazardous mat­erials ready for recycling.

These materials include critical raw materials such as indium and plastics contained in the screens.

The technology is currently being demonstrated in Ireland and is available for potential customers to see in action.
