The amount of electronic waste is growing annually all over the world, today it is almost 45 million tons. Less than 20% of electronic waste is being decontaminated and recycled. The rest is being taken to landfills or to places which are not supposed to store hazardous waste. This increases the adverse impact on the environment due to the fact that the waste consists of over 50% of hazardous components. At the same time, it also contains rare and expensive metals including indium. To extract indium from electronic waste it is necessary to justify the method of leaching. For this purpose research on leaching of indium from mobile phone screens has been done using various acids and parameters of the leaching process. As a result of the analysis, 6 methodologies were tested with various acid concentrations, the contact time of solid matter with a chemical reagent and temperature. The results of experimental research on the determination of metal concentration in mobile phone screens and the analysis of methods on indium leaching from mobile phone screens into a solution for further research are presented.
