Ø We are quickly reaching the limits of many of the natural resources required to build our 21 st century gadgets. § Demand is outstripping Supply. Ø Virgin Materials are significantly more costly than recycled materials for manufacturing. § Demand for recycling materials is expanding with global growth in emerging markets Ø E-waste contains a large amount of rare and increasingly difficult to replace metals: § platinum, § gallium, § indium, etc. Ø Aside from re-harvesting rare materials, there is the embedded energy content to consider. Ø In the face of rising energy prices legislators understand we cannot continue to throw our electronic waste stream away which contains a toxic substance and high energy value Page 10

Energy Conservation Benefits Cont… Ø Significant Energy Savings Recycling of electronic waste conserves a Energy Conservation Benefits Cont… Ø Significant Energy Savings Recycling of electronic waste conserves a tremendous amount of energy. 60% Ø Recycling these materials also reduces emissions of pollutants that can cause smog, acid rain and the contamination of waterways. Ø For example, the smelting of bauxite ore to make aluminum requires 20 times more energy than melting down and reusing the aluminum scrap. Page 11

ERI: Electronic Waste Industry Ø Municipalities, governments, and companies looking to “green” their images ERI: Electronic Waste Industry Ø Municipalities, governments, and companies looking to “green” their images further are likely to embrace ecycling. Ø Like global warming a few years ago, the drum beat to address e-waste properly, is growing louder. Ø Faced with costly clean-ups, looming health concerns and growing climate-changeinduced pubic awareness of the planet’s fragility, more states could begin to mandate ecycling. Ø This trend could create new opportunities for recycling companies, like Electronic Recyclers, as well as those companies that are involved in the recovery and refining of base metals. Page 12
