Blackmore’s founder Simon Barfoot visited The Royal Mint to deliver 750kg of e-waste to support a new initiative to extract the gold. This type of circular economy is not only taking into consideration the re-use of electronic components but it is also keeping the loop within the UK which reduces the carbon from transportation. Though the primary goal is to extract the gold from the components, the remaining materials will still be recycled and separated in the correct way.
Should this project be successful, the computers recycled with Blackmore could show up in some of their limited edition coins and other items at The Royal Mint. Keep up to date with our news by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
