ree El Our Business Model
TDR and Ruiz Electronic Recycling operates as a urban mining company. It mines discarded e-waste that when collected can be turn it into raw materials of metals and plastics which can made into new electronic products, or can be tested and resold, thereby conserving natural resources and prevention pollution of the environment. It is a green business model of sustainable economic development, where the needs of the present are met without compromising future generations’ needs.
Turning e-waste into resource has created jobs in a new industry in the new green economy. The philosophy of a Green Economy is to manage economic development in a way that improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. The success of electronic recycling and other green industries refute perhaps the most widespread assertion that there is an inescapable trade-off between environmental sustainability and economic progress. TDR and Ruiz Electronic Recycling and green industries around the world demonstrates that the greening of economies does not inhibit opportunities for investment and related growth in wealth and jobs.
The field of electronic recycling has huge growth opportunities, as a only small percentage of e-waste around the world is being recover. The waste majority of is still being illegal dumped.
