Recyclekaro to expand capacity to 75,000 tonne a year with new technology – ET Auto


Recyclekaro’s unit, currently boasting a capacity of 7500 metric tonnes, retrieves metals like gold, silver, and palladium, along with rare earth metals from industrial residues.

New Delhi: Recyclekaro, a prominent player in e-waste and lithium-ion battery recycling in India, is gearing up to introduce India’s first Plasma Furnace Technology Unit for the extraction of high-value metals. This advancement signifies a leap forward in recycling and resource recovery, positioning India at the forefront of innovation in environmental sustainability, the company said. .

Plasma Furnace Technology leverages high-temperature plasma arcs to efficiently extract valuable metals from diverse waste streams. Unlike conventional methods that may pose environmental risks, this technology offers a cleaner, more sustainable approach to metal extraction.

Recyclekaro’s state-of-the-art unit, currently boasting a capacity of 7500 metric tonnes, retrieves precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, along with rare earth metals from electronic waste and industrial residues. With the installation of the new plasma furnace, Recyclekaro’s e-waste recycling capacity is set to increase nearly tenfold to 75,000 metric tonnes per annum, the company said in a media release, the company said in a media release.

Given China’s current dominance, accounting for around 85% of rare earth elements (REE) production, Recyclekaro is aiming to make a notable contribution to rare earth elements production, with plans to achieve up to 1 million to 1.5 million tonnes per annum.

Rajesh Gupta, Founder and Director of Recyclekaro, said, “The introduction of India’s first Plasma Furnace Technology Unit will represent a significant leap forward in our mission to revolutionize waste management and resource recovery. This innovative technology will help extract rare earth metals from already generated e-waste, help us conserve resources, and reduce our dependence on imports.”

Plasma Furnace Technology generates high temperatures between 5000 to 1000 degrees Celsius, facilitating faster processing times and higher metal recovery rates compared to traditional methods. With an expected 90% increase in efficiency and productivity, this environmentally friendly technology aligns with Recyclekaro’s sustainability objectives and regulatory standards.

The Plasma Furnace Technology Unit will feature cutting-edge machinery, ensuring cost-effective and eco-friendly operations while complying with stringent environmental and safety standards. This advancement will not only present economic opportunities for India but also contribute to the circular economy, job creation, and technological innovation, .the release said.
