Chris Sayers, Managing Director commented, “Scipher has made significant progress across our people, technology, services, licences and contracts aimed towards our goal of become Australia’s leader in ESG urban mining. The 1 million kg e-waste raw materials recovery milestone, announced on the occasion of International E-waste day, has been a team effort and I would like to thank all those who have been involved and this will be the first of many major milestones to come.

International E-waste day was developed by the WEEE Forum, a global not-for-profit organisation represented by producer responsibility organisations. The day raises public awareness of the social and environmental issues caused by one of the world’s fastest growing waste streams, and aims to encourage consumers to take responsibility for recycling of their e-waste.”
