To deal with the inadequate disposal of e-waste, many states have instituted bans on its disposal in municipal landfills. However, the effectiveness of e-waste bans does not seem to have been analyzed yet. This paper starts addressing this gap. Using data

The present study was conducted to investigate the gold bioleaching factors from ore by cyanide producing bacterium Chromobacterium violaceum. The optimal condition for cyanide production by C. violaceum was pH 9 and 5 g/L of glycine in YP medium in 2-day
Effective one-step removal-inertization of hazardous metals (Cd and Hg) by environmental friendly re

HMe2pipdt]I3 (Me2pipdt = N,N′-dimethyl-piperazine-2,3-dithione, 1) is capable to quantitatively dissolve elemental Cd and Hg to produce in a one-step reaction the [CdI(Me2pipdt)2]I3 (2) and [HgI2(Me2pipdt)] (3) complexes. Crystals of 2 and 3 have been str
The air pollution generated at electronics waste dismantling sites may have a dangerous impact on the health of nearby residents.
There is a huge opportunity for e-waste recyclers in Europe, according to a new report by market analysts Frost & Sullivan. The e-waste recycling market earned revenues of $1.30 billion in 2012 and will reach $1.79 in 2020.

Some modern so-called low carbon technologies are actually broadening concerns over future elemental sustainability for a wide range of elements.
A close look at the material flowing into and out of the recycling process--particularly precious metals--shows that conventional sorting technologies such as shredding lead to extensived losses of high-value material.

Primary constituents of e-waste from end-of-life (EOL) computers consist of glass, metals and plastics. Thus the quality of recycling of e-waste is dependent upon individual indicators like cathode ray tube (CRT) recycling, plastics recycling and recovery
