  1. Note:
  2. Averages include disassembly-based lab data and high-quality literature data.
  3. Cells left blank indicate that a material or component is not applicable to the product. For example, CRT glass is only found in CRT TVs and monitors and is not expected in other product categories.
  4. Cells containing “—” indicate that a material was not directly detected or quantified, although it may be present in the product. For example, the total reported mass of a PCB (component) would likely include individual materials present in that component (aluminum, copper, gold) that are not detectable or separable by physical disassembly alone. Likewise, stated values for each individual material reflect only the mass of that material when it is separable, identifiable, and quantifiable by physical disassembly and not additional amounts of that material that may be contained in composite components (i.e., materials are not double counted).
