Sinctronics, which calls itself a Green IT Innovation Center, operates what it says is Brazil’s first integrated ecosystem for electronic products. The center processes 100 tons of discarded equipment per month and generates raw material for the manufacture of new products, thereby reducing the extraction of natural resources, saving energy and decreasing carbon emissions. When discarded computers and printers arrive at its facility, Sinctronics uses RFID readers to identify their component materials so they can be more quickly recycled and incorporated into new IT products. Learn how Sinctronics is using RFID as an enabler for new business processes.
