TOKYO OLYMPICS GOLD MEDALS BULLION TO COME FROM OLD CELL PHONES

Olympic and Paralympic medals for the Tokyo 2020 Games will be made from recycled mobile phones.

The Japanese public will be asked to donate old phones and small appliances to gather two tonnes of gold, silver and bronze for the 5,000 medals.

The project hopes to promote sustainability and reduce costs.

"A project that allows the people of Japan to take part in creating the medals is really good," said Tokyo 2020 sports director Koji Murofushi.

"There's a limit on the resources of our earth, so recycling these things will make us think about the environment."

Collection boxes will be placed in local offices and telecoms stores from April and will remain there until the metal required has been collected.

Members of Japan's Olympic organising committee tabled the idea to government officials and companies in 2016.

Olympic host cities have traditionally obtained the metal from mining firms.

But Japan, which lacks its own mineral resources, is keen to take the theme of a sustainable future a step further.
How does e-waste recycling work?

Discarded consumer electronics such as smartphones and tablets contain small amounts of precious and rare earth metals, including platinum, palladium, gold, silver, lithium, cobalt and nickel.

Scrap cars and home appliances such as fridges and air conditioners also contain these rarer metals, along with base metals, including iron, copper, lead and zinc.

Recycling or refining companies either collect or purchase tons of this e-waste and industrial scraps. They then use chemical processes to separate the various metals.

Much of this work takes place in developing countries such as China, India and Indonesia. Your old phone may be more valuable than you think: Scientists find a new way to recover GOLD from gadgets

Until now gold extraction methods have been inefficient and dangerous
New method uses a simple chemical to recover gold from circuit boards
This could help to reduce the environmental impact of gold mining
The finding could help salvage some of the estimated 300 tonnes of gold used in electronics each year, researchers say Now a new technique using a simple chemical has been designed which could help the development of methods for large-scale recovery of gold.

This would mean Japan would not need to mine new metals, and instead could use 'urban mine' from discarded consumer technology.

Games organisers are asking Japanese firms to pitch ideas for recycling schemes to help encourage citizens to donate.

If the scheme is successful it would mean the usual practice of getting precious material mines to donate the metal for the medals would cease, or at least be dramatically reduced.
