Project Details

Description

Hundreds of millions of liquid crystal displays (LCDs) will reach the end of their useful life in the next few years. Without proper treatment, these used LCDs could lead to serious damage to the environment in the developed and/or developing countries. Particularly, stringent regulation and high labor cost in developed countries may lead to illegal shipment to developing countries. Equipment and tools that enable fast disassembly of LCD to recover valuable components are critically needed to achieve profitable recycling in developed countries. This project aims at filling this critical technical gap by designing, fabricating, and demonstrating a set of equipments/tools.
