Electrum is pleased to announce that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has granted us a 5 year operating permit. Electrum continues to operate with very high standards for the safety of our employees and the environment.
The volume of lead free solder for recycling will increase tremendously in the coming years due to revised alloy specifications in Europe and Japan requiring the use of lead free solder in the manufacture of electronic assemblies. The intent is to eliminate the presence of lead in “end of life” consumer electronic equipment and appliances thus reducing the possibility of lead “leaching” as a pollutant at landfills. At this time, it is uncertain if lead free solder alloys will be used to manufacture military, medical or automotive electronic assemblies, especially if manufactured in the United States.
