Samsung to recycle 157 tones of resources from recalled Galaxy Note7


The Galaxy Note7 fiasco, led Samsung to recall all the units, and a total of 4 million devices was in its possession. The South Korean tech giant back in March revealed plans how it will recycle million of returned Galaxy Note7, that involved three stages.

The first stage involved refurbishing some unopened units of the Galaxy Note7  into a new safer version called Galaxy Fan Edition, that released in Samsung's home market recently. While the remaining Galaxy Note7, were said to be recycled with salvageable components detached for reuse, as well as extraction of metals.

Now, Samsung has announced that it will start the recycling task later this month. The process is estimated to recover around 157 tonnes of rare metals like gold, silver, cobalt and copper. The company will team up with various foreign and domestic organizations to extract the materials.

In addition to metals, key reusable components like AMOLED display modules, memory semiconductors and camera modules will be detached from Galaxy Note7's through eco-friendly processing methods. Samsung plans to use some of these components as service materials and the remaining parts will be sold.
