Award Winning e-Waste Recycling and Asset Recovery since 1992

We are a Texas Tech University Research Center
Our TTU Collaboration's Importance

"It is important that we do whatever we can to further advance this technology. This not only helps our industry but has a positive impact on our world.", says, Alex Abadi, Ph.D. (CEO, Image Microsystems). We are all interested in protecting the environment. At Image Microsystems, we are being proactive by leading this change.

Texas Tech University Partnership

We are committed to being a leader in determining better methods to control the growing amount of obsolete electronics threatening the world's resources. Meeting this environmental commitment means finding improved ways for dealing with the increasing flood of e-waste. As part of this effort, we partner with Texas Tech University (TTU) a leading environmental research institute--to develop new strategies and methods to control e-waste.

The on-going research by Dr. Hong-Chao Zhang, Ph.D., P.E. at the Center for Applied Research in Advanced Manufacturing at Texas Tech University is developing new forward thinking engineering methods and intellectual property that influence priorities in the electronics product development process. The goal is to develop product development standards that achieve a more environmental friendly impact when these products reach their end-of-life. This collaborative agreement between Image Microsystems and TTU is an on-going research initiative in the area of computer component recycling technologies.

Texas Tech University Research Center

Image Microsystems has gone as far as defining its Austin facility as a "Research Laboratory" available to TTU for the research and improvement of recycling processes for e-waste.
