Recycling plant for SIM cards
SIM cards are containing a microchip vapour coated with precious metals. The SIM card treatment concepts known to date were focusing on data destruction and not on material recycling. The small amounts of materials and precious metals were lost. URT has developed a plant with which not only SIM cards but also SIM cards including outer packaging can be shredded and furthermore automatically separated into components like plastics, foil, paper and metal parts.
This first plant has been also successfully installed at a customer in Brazil in 2015.
