Spent brewer’s yeast which is a widely available byproduct of the brewing process, can help separate the heavy metals found in electronic waste making them easier to recycle.

“Most heavy metals cause environmental and atmospheric pollution, and may be lethal to humans,” according to Science Direct. “Heavy metals can become strongly toxic by mixing with different environmental elements, such as water, soil, and air, and humans and other living organisms can be exposed to them through the food chain.”

“Electronic waste is difficult to recycle because it is very heterogeneous,” paper author Klemens Kremser, a biotechnology researcher at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, said in a statement. “.Compared to processes such as chemical precipitation, biosorption using spent brewer’s yeast presents a cheap and environmentally friendly approach.”

“Heavy metals are classified as carcinogens and have been linked with multi-organ damage according to scientific reports. “Unlike organic pollutants, heavy metals do not degrade and tend to bioaccumulate along the food chain.”
