The idea of urban mining was born in the 80s in Japan. It consists of the recycling of electronic and electrical equipment driven by the increase in new technologies. He focuses his attention on the components inside as they are increasingly difficult to find materials. Our devices today such as household appliances, mobile phones, laptops, etc. They can contain up to 60 elements of the periodic table, elements of great value such as copper, iron, nickel, lithium, cobalt and even gold and silver. With recycling, new devices can be generated.
The Urban Mining company in Segovia takes into account the importance of the recycling process and the selective collection of these materials, always in accordance with the provisions of European legislation. It also has the recycling of airbag safety systems and a reception center for electric vehicle accumulators and batteries.
To guarantee safety in all processes, since many are highly polluting, the Minera Urbana company has relied on DURTEX HC PRO ethanol and DURTOX CO detectors for its lithium battery recycling container. These detectors have been designed and manufactured by Durán Electrónica, S.L.
