E-Waste Recovery, Reuse, Recycle, Management and Treatment : An Insight

Authors(1) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni

India is one of the fastest growing economies. The progress in information and technology sector in India is fast and continuous. In the computer and I.T. sector, the people should know various interdisciplinary aspects and effects of waste generated due to these industries and their effects. Solid waste management is already a grey area in India. The components of the computer assembly contain many heavy metals. Many of these metals are precious. Solid waste management and its various aspects are studied by various researchers and scholars. The formal recycling facilities are inadequate and obsolete. Informal recyclers are treating 95% of the E-waste generated with hazardous practices. The rapid growth of technology, upgradation in technical innovation and high rate of obsolescence in electronic industry calls for better and competitive technology. Current review summarizes research and studies carried out on reuse, recovery and treatment of E waste.
