Submission + - Old Tech Is The Best Place To Mine Rare Metals (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "More on recycling: the tech industry could face increasing shortages of rare metals, unless it reclaims them from the waste stream . the Royal Society in London was told this week that production of "hitchhiker" metals such as gallium, indium and selenium can't be easily ramped up, as they are only available as a by-product of major industrial metals such as aluminium, copper and zinc. If we want more, we have to make better use of them, and claim them back from e-waste."
