Fact #3 – It takes 1.9 kg of resources like aluminum, gold and cobalt that need to be extracted and processed to make 1 new phone
Private mobile phones contribute to a large share of today’s e-waste (up to 8 million unused mobile phones can be found in Belgian and Dutch households). Of these old phones, more than 70% of the resources such as aluminum, gold and cobalt can be recycled. It takes 1.9 kg of resources like aluminum, gold and cobalt that need to be extracted and processed to make 1 new phone. Through recycling, these mineral resources can be conserved. An even better solution is through CTG Circular, as we also collect and refurbish mobile phones, entering them in the circularity of a second valuable lifetime.
