This presentation was given as part of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) keynote session held on Wednesday, March 12 at the TMS 2008 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It covers new developments in recycling, supported by the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards and Technology/ATP, that use optoelectronic recycling processes that are under development or being piloted to recycle end-of-life goods in a fully automated way. These advanced technologies can run at high capacity and sort a wide array of materials with extreme accuracy yielding high-value recycled raw materials. As a result, a paradigm shift in recycling, with significant consequential benefits to the environment, is both possible and probable. Another probability is the generation of more opportunities for manufacturing new products with much higher quantities of recycled content.

The recording is made possible through support from AIME.
