An innovative new project recently launched in Australia should see the environmental impact of consumer electronics significantly reduced in the future. Located in New South Wales, it’s the world’s first e- waste microfactory, processing waste materials from phones and other digital equipment to be used for other purposes, such as making 3D printer filament. We […]
