John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers, Inc. (ERI), discussed electronics recycling and “e-waste” at the ThinkEquity Partners LLC Second Annual ThinkGreen Summit at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco today.
Addressing an audience of investors and financial analysts looking for specific insights into the biggest trends among environmentally friendly businesses, Shegerian stressed the mounting environmental problems caused by the increase of our nation’s e-waste and explained the long- range national and international potential of electronic recycling as a viable business and emerging global industry.
ThinkGreen is the premier gathering for industry executives, investors, influencers and policy makers. In this one-of-a-kind forum, presenting companies outline their latest breakthroughs, developments and challenges. ThinkEquity Partners designed the event as an opportunity for investors and analysts to meet face-to-face with key influencers and industry luminaries and witness firsthand the state-of-the-art green technology that is shaping our future.
“It’s a great honor to have been asked to present at ThinkEquity Partners’ ThinkGreen event and to discuss the promise of electronic recycling before such an influential financial community audience,” said Shegerian. “The planet’s increasing glut of electronic waste is a problem whose time for resolution has come. Properly disposing of electronic waste and the hazards it presents has become the touchstone for a major new industry with local, national and global implications. It’s a rare privilege too, to be presenting alongside a diverse collection of other organizations that are in touch with their green DNA.”
The leader of its industry, Electronic Recyclers is the number one electronic recycling company that demanufactures and recycles electronic items ranging from computer monitors to televisions to cell phones to computers themselves. ERI is capable of processing in excess of 100 million pounds of electronic waste per year.
