Is e waste recycling a profitable business?

Scrap circuit boards are abundant around the world, which brings a potential market of scrap recycling business. Also, the price of metals is pretty high, which makes the recycling business more profitable. Under this background, an increasing number of people consider to start this business, but they still wonder whether it is a profitable business or not. Now, this article will use calculations and figures to tell you whether e-waste recycling makes money.

To figure out the profit of this business, we need to know how much does we cost, and how much does we get. Then we can know how much profit will we get. Due to the high labor cost, it is hard to make money from processing a large number of waste circuit boards by human. Therefore, in this article, I will take the 500kg/h PCB board recycling machine of Henan Doing Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd as an example to calculate the profit of e waste recycling business.

Daily cost:

The daily consumption includes the input to buy waste circuit boards, the input of power consumption and labor. According to the current Indian market, the cost for buying waste circuit board is around 857.14USD per ton. If the PCB board recycling machine works 8 hours each day, it will process 4 ton waste circuit boards. So the cost of waste circuit board is 3428.57USD in total. The power of machine (500kg/h) is 72kw, so it will cost about 81USD per day for power consumption. Because this machine is fully automatic, which only requires 1-2 workers to operate, so the daily labor cost is about 42.86USD for two workers. Accordingly, the daily consumption for processing 4 ton waste circuit boards per day will be about 3552.43USD.

Daily income:

As for daily income, it will depends on the selling price of metals and resin&fiber. As waste circuit boards contain about 18% metals and 82% resin&fiber, after processing 4 ton waste circuit boards, we will get 0.72 ton metals and 3.28 ton resin&fiber. The current price of metals is 7142.86USD, and the price of resin&fiber is 142.86USD. Therefore, our daily income is 5611.43USD.

Daily profit:

The daily profit is daily income minus daily cost. So according to calculation, through processing 4 ton waste circuit boards per day, we can get 2059USD.
