Teck increasing Trail’s e-waste recycling

Teck Resources Limited is investing $210 million into electronic waste recycling in Trail

Teck Resources Limited announced yesterday that it will invest $210 million into electronic waste recycling in Trail.

This investment will increase the Trail operation’s capacity to recycle end-of-life electronic waste.

The project, known as the No. 4 Furnace Project, includes the construction of a new slag fuming furnace and settling furnace that will integrate into the existing lead smelting process.

Teck is setting construction to begin on the project in 2012, with completion scheduled for 2014.

“This is part of our ongoing commitment to the community of Trail,” said Don Lindsay, Teck president and chief executive officer.

“Last year we recycled just over 13,000 tonnes of e-waste at our Trail Operations and this project will significantly increase our capacity to recycle end-of-life electronic components, helping to keep them out of landfills and allowing for the recovery and reuse of valuable metals.”

Teck is also investing $475 million into a mill modernization into its Highland Valley Copper operation near Kamloops.
