Pioneering Urban Mining project
One of our core values is to take an active role in changing the future of our planet, in line with the EU's sustainable development goals.
d|rig has started a 3 MEUR innovation project with Sintef Digital, to investigate whether it is possible to create a system that automatically detects circuit boards and electronic components for recovery or recycling. The goal is to develop an automated production line to harvest components containing rare earth metals.
Smelting of circuit boards results in large losses of rare earth metals. At a global level, less than 1% of the soil metals is recovered and over 90% of their access is controlled by one nation.
