Cg CSM is a start-up which innovates for appropriate low-cost solutions for recycling E-waste. Its current product is the copper stripping machine which is the result of 3 years of research, co-designing and prototyping. Cg CSM provides a low-tech (low-cost) Copper Stripping Machine which utilizes a roller with an option of a cutter to recycle copper wire from E-waste cables as a clean alternative to the traditional burning of these cables (releasing toxic fumes and environmental pollution) by small-scale E-waste recyclers.
