Phosphor


A phosphor is a substance that exhibits the phenomenon of luminescence. The most common uses of phosphors are in CRT displays and fluorescent lights in e-waste. A cathode ray tube (CRT) is the glass tube that converts an electronic signal into a visual image on a television or computer. Most desktop computer displays and older televisions use CRTs. Phosphor is an inorganic chemical compound that is applied as a coat on the interior of the CRT faceplate. The phosphor coating contains heavy metals, such as cadmium, and other rare earth metals, e.g. zinc, vanadium, etc. as additives. These metals and their compounds are very toxic. This is a serious hazard posed for those who dismantle CRTs by hand. Cathode ray tubes are toxic because of phosphor, which contains several toxic metals, and because of the high lead content in the glass of the cone part of the CRT. Components of the CRTs are separated by heating in a closed chamber. Which sucks out phosphors from the components. They are then crushed in shredder machines. Glass containing lead is sold to the Companies that manufacture the CRTs. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) includes discarded CRT monitors in its category of "hazardous household waste" but considers CRTs that have been set aside for testing to be commodities if they are not discarded, speculatively accumulated, or left unprotected from weather and other damage.
