Title: Recycling of Liquid Crystal Displays for Maximum Resource Recovery

With the surge in popularity of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD) used in TV’s and computers, recycling them is expensive and complicated resulting in many units shipped illegally to Asia and Africa. Students at Purdue University are developing new tools and green processes for dismantling LCD’s to recover mercury for proper disposal and high-value materials for reuse. The equipment and tools developed will make recycling LCDs profitable in the US.
