            Millions of old gadgets 'stockpiled in drawers' 上千萬件電子產品 “被堆放在抽屜里”


            一項研究估計,在英國家庭中,共堆積了多達四千萬件不再被使用的舊電子產品。而且每一件產品中都含有多種珍貴且日益 “瀕危” 的元素。

            The Royal Society of Chemistry’s survey of more than 2,000 people revealed that almost half have between two and five old gadgets in their homes and most people have no plans to recycle them.

            英國皇家化學學會(Royal Society of Chemistry)對兩千多人進行的一項調查顯示,近一半的人家中有兩到五件舊電子設備,而且絕大多數人不打算對這些設備進行回收再利用。

            This means an estimated 40 million old devices, most containing elements the Earth is simply running out of, could be languishing in cupboards and drawers.

            這意味著,大約有四千萬件舊設備,其中大多數設備都含有地球即將耗盡的元素,可能會在柜子和抽屜里報廢。

            The mines for elements such as indium, for example, which is used to make touch screens, will be exhausted within a century.

            例如,用于制造觸摸屏幕的銦等元素的礦藏將在一個世紀內枯竭。

            Meanwhile, demand for more advanced personal devices continues to increase. So scientists say recycling our old tech is the only sustainable solution.

            與此同時,對更先進的個人設備的需求日益增長。因此,科學家們說,回收我們的舊電子設備是唯一可持續的解決方案。
