itwbennett writes "The only way to rapidly and cost-effectively devolve computer products is to know the composition of the products. But we don’t, says blogger Tom Henderson. This industry — largely at the behest of COMPTIA members — pioneered bar coding schemes, asset tagging, and inventory control, and could now also add rapid product devolution to its list of credits. We need a taxonomy, a method to affix material markings, and a database access method that tells the devolvers how to make money. Do this and you could be a billionaire and a hero, says Henderson."

  • Tom Henderson needs to do his research before blogging. A company already has an entire solution, including how to make money on the recycling end. In fact the VP of Environmental Affairs, Jim Mejia has already obtained (in the late 1990s) a slew of patents related to eWaste recycling based on the processes that he developed for extracting the valuable materials from the scrap.
