What are we doing to help our planet.

Pfane Environmental Association focuses it's efforts on the study of e-waste, it's components, it's toxicity. How e-waste disposal affects ecosystems, how it's recycling affects ecosystems and how we can tackle the epidemic that has been ongoing for more than 50 years.

We have made significant progress in our developments toward balanced and circular solutions that are sustainable and support the current recycling efforts of ewaste.


Research Current methods

The unfortunate truth about ewaste is that it is difficult to recycle. With current mechanical methods walking the wire between dangerous and tollerable


Identify The Issues

Research is only useful when it is used to innitiate change or help guide innovation. 


Develop Solutions

Pfane's core competency has been the development and engineering of methods, machines, processes, solutions and software  That directly solve key issues hindering the furtherment of the e-waste industry


Test Innovations

Pfane has been involved in developing and testing methods and systems for numerous metal extraction technologies, logistics systems, mechanical improvements and much more.


Quantify Results

We quantify all of our results first in house and when required with independant laboritories who support our work.



The result of over 5 years of research and development has been a turn key system we beleive can be implimented world wide.
A system with the ability to neutralize the e-waste epidemic inside 50 years time

Current projects

Ongoing research and development projects in the field of electronic waste handelling and control.

If we recycled all the ewaste...


billion tons of CO2 can be saved per year


resources could stop mining completely


square kilometers of land would be cleaned


completely circular markets could be created

We Are Making A Difference

The work Pfane Environmental Association is doing is slowly making a difference in the wasy e-waste is recycled, world wide.

R4 Circular Recycling Centers

Pfane Environmental Association holds strict standards for the use of it's name and standards certification.  Any ewaste facility registered as R4 certified can be assured that minimum required standards set by government and ISO are far surpassed.  R4 circular certification requires complete transparency from the owners and operators as well as monthly verification and yearly retesting.
