Carbon emissions, and their offsetting, is an incredibly important topic for all of the worlds industrial giants, but none more so than those in mining and steel production. These companies are racing towards creating a more sustainable future and investing in projects and systems that can help them achieve these goals. Repair, Don’t Waste is proud to be a collaborator in sustainability with both Vale and Usiminas by reducing the potential E-Waste produced in industrial processes.
Over the past 4 years, GE has saved 20 million dollars by consigning the act of throwing away a faulty PCB to the past. Their strategy now? Repair, Don’t Waste.
At ABI we believe that investing in your own in-house repair and maintenance capabilities is absolutely necessary for all industries who are focused on emissions and e-waste reductions.

Why not find out for yourself!
VLT Carioca, also known as Rio de Janeiro Light Rail, has made a huge commitment to the #RepairDon’tWaste movement by investing in specialist test and measurement equipment provided by ABI Electronics. With this investment, VLT are securing a future that is immune to component obsolescence, costly machine downtime whilst taking huge steps towards net-zero targets.
It is common knowledge in the electronics and manufacturing industries that the ongoing covid pandemic has caused an acute shortage of electronic component chips on an unprecedented global scale. The demand for semiconductor chips has been increasing year by year as the world has rapidly embraced the digitalised future. Can Industry escape the damages of the chip shortage, and benefit the planet at the same time?
In-house electronics repair saves large LCD production line from being halted by programmed obsolescence.
Since 2016, one of the world’s top 10 largest LCD and AMOLED panel manufacturers that we will refer to as TG Optronics in Southeast Asia has been investing time and effort into finding a new, long-term solution for a regular electronic problem they were experiencing in their assembly line robotic equipment.
Willian Santos of ABI Electronics and RepairDontWaste.com recently had the pleasure of being a special guest on the UK’s top manufacturing-focused podcast and had the opportunity to speak about the evolution of the ‘Repair, Don’t Waste’ movement and the successes it has made so far.
AmePower’s investment in ABI’s electronic troubleshooting system BoardMaster and reverse engineering equipment RevEng will provide exclusive capabilities to AmePower for highly sophisticated refurbishment, recovery, and modernisation of power electronics used in railway.
The subject of this case study is a company we’ll call IDS, short for “in deep ship.” IDS is the designer and manufacturer of RSS drill heads for offshore oil drilling. Prior to finding ABI and BoardMaster, IDS was having a problem with their RSS drill heads. Deep under the seabed, something was causing a fault in the transmission from the drill head. Without a drill head location signal, drill rig operators were forced to pull the drill.
The Royal Mint has revealed plans to build a “world-first” plant in South Wales to recover gold from UK electronic waste. The pioneering facility will help address the growing environmental issue of E-Waste, alongside fostering invaluable skills in Britain’s job market When complete in 2023, the new venture will support about 40 jobs. Although the Royal Mint recycling plant is an exciting prospect for many, it does not address the root of the issue – why are we wasting electronics rather than repairing them?
