Recycling and the state of sustainable new product design:

Recently AVA toured the Design 2 Part Design & Contract Manufacturers Chicagoland tradeshow at the Schaumburg Convention Center and were curious to find out how many of the exhibitors were knowledgeable about their company’s use of recycled materials in new product design. I found that only a handful could reliably comment and these were mostly metal fabricators which at least could and should be as we expected. But I was surprised that many of the hi-tech equipment manufacturers (or at least the sales staff) really weren’t sure. Also I was a bit surprised that many of the circuit board manufacturers were not up to date about news coming from overseas over past months about rare earth minerals & metals and of course the ‘conflict minerals’. Much of the earth’s’ supply of these appear to be bound up in China (which recently indicated that it would be scaling back exports sharply). In fact Greenbiz has been reporting monthly on how corporate giants such as Honda, Hitachi, GE, HP, Intel, Unilever and Maersk are all making strategic plans to respond to rare earth metals (also known as REM) global shortage anticipated in the next few years. Just last week Greenbiz reporter Per Meilstrup published an article called “The Resource Crisis: Closer to the Edge” which summed up what looks to be a new global materials panic over these metals which are critical for the chain for items we use, ranging from Smart phones and flat screen monitors to computers and hybrid Electronic Vehicle (EV)batteries. His article sites a recent McKinsey report entitled “Resource Revolution” in which it is predicted that very soon most major manufacturers will be scrambling to address this ‘resource shock’ head on. Most likely it is predicted that recycling these minerals from existing products will become the first line of defense. The GOOD NEWS in all of this at least from the manufacturing perspective, is that jobs are returning to US soil from Asia, China’s stranglehold on certain commodities will play out in their favor in the short term. However it’s my considered opinion that in the long run many companies will embrace a ‘recycled materials’ option. Perhaps in coming years we will see the seal on our products saying not only “Made In America” but “Made in America With 100% Recycled Material” And so We dream! Over & out for now Scrapdawg Other related articles:

NuGreenGenIT ~ An Innovative e-Recycling Internships

In the new year 2012 Ava Institute of Electronic Recycling developed an innovative internship for college/university technology students. Here is the executive summary introduction:


AVA’s innovative e-recycling internship provides the new generation of young IT professionals a background and a ‘hands on’ training in the basics of responsible recycling. It opens the door to IT opportunities that align technology with sustainability and an innovative vision towards supply chain and cost and energy reduction issues across a wide array businesses and industries. Hence we have christened it the ‘green’ IT professionals of the new generation.

Students can learn processes for data erasure, data security, valuation and management of materials and re-marketability (reuse) of equipment. This program also offers exposure to cutting edge research in the field of reuse applications for manufacturing developing critical cost and energy saving strategies that can have applications to other industries as well. AVA supports and promotes sustainable product design among its core interests. The AVA intern also develops a sense for regulatory compliance’s as pertains to environmental and energy standards and savings which is an emerging development in the global enterprise.

Students will be introduced to all aspects of e-recycling during the 10-16 weeks of the internship (which varies based on quarterly vs. semester ceu’s) and will have completed at least one project that pertains to and possibly exceeds the coursework they are engaged in i.e.onsite data destruction for a large company, or determining the value of several scrap commodities based on market study and research or setting up a network for a large IT operation.

Finally, as noted above students are acquainted with various standards and regulations that are shaping the global ethics field. AVA is a proponent of responsible recycling and thus seeks to shape awareness of those principles whenever possible. For AVA, responsible recycling is defined as:
* A moratorium on land filling electronics and electronic components and scrap and improper and un-permitted incineration.
* Proper end market reclamation of scrap metals & materials including potentially toxic or hazardous materials.
* A moratorium on exporting hazardous materials to non- OECD countries.
* Selling non-working components for the express purposes of repair & refurbishment.
We joined Skipso CleanTech consortium and have posted the NuGreenGenIT on the Funding District part of the Skipso site and have posted the internship on half a dozen local (west suburban Chicagoland) technology schools (colleges) career boards.We’ve received a good deal of enthusiasm from the schools career services faculty and are beginning to see some student response. Our difficulty is that these positions are as yet, unfunded. Thus these internships will have to compete with salaried or even stipend-ed placements. We plan however to offer our interns
exposure to our best corporate CIO & CTO’s clients that AVA Recycling serves and thus optimize their career foothold once they graduate. I believe that more and more company and corporate IT executives (especially those with environmental and sustainability goals and programs), will be attracted to an IT workforce with a ‘green’ background such as our internships will receive.

Where electronic data hides.

Recently I visited a prospective client in Oakbrook IL and was asked if AVA could provide in house data destruction of their digital copier/printer. I said sure though for a moment I was puzzled and had forgotten that newer digital copiers have installed hard drives. Over that weekend I was doing some casual research on data destruction (unrelated to copiers) and unexpectedly came across the article from the Info Law Group, “FTC Issues Guide to Businesses on Securing Digital Copiers”.
This sparked my curiosity as to how many other personal and business devices that are used daily are capturing and retaining proprietary or confidential business information (CBI) that escapes our awareness? For instance, AVA recycles lots of cell phones for consumers and our corporate customers who usually remove the SIM card prior to submitting for disposal. Even without the SIM many phones do retain data. So what about scanners or other electronics designed to read data?

We will continue to update this blog as new information becomes available.
It’s our hope that our readers will consider the apparently many overlooked places where their important data may hide and be proactive in securing these storage devices. In the meantime we invite you to read the entire article noted above which has been reproduced here with the kind permission of the author Richard Santalesa and the Info LawGroup:

AVA recommends our readers visit for other pertinent articles, papers & information on legal issues surrounding data related topics.
