Environmental and economic evaluation of cathode ray tube (CRT) funnel glass waste management option
Published: 10/25/2013 by Qingbo Xu, Mengjing Yu, Alissa Kendall, Wenzhi He, Guangming Li, Julie M. Schoenung in Current Research
The end-of-life waste management of cathode ray tube (CRT) funnel glass is a concern due to the high lead content (22%) within the glass. Inappropriate and insufficient waste management methods can lead to both health and climate impacts. This paper evalu
Items manufactured with recycled electroic goods have grown during the past five years due to shifts in consumer preference toward environmentally friendly products. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates revenue will increase at 8.6% annually.

Electronic waste or e-waste is one of the emerging problems in developed and developing countries worldwide. It comprises of a multitude of components with valuable materials, some containing toxic substances, that can have an adverse impact on human heal
The dismantling of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and the recovery of their useful materials can lead to serious environmental impacts mainly due to their complicated physical structure and the variety of toxic elements contained in their materi

We estimated the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) generated in South Korea by using the population balance model (PBM) based on a lifespan distribution analysis. This is the first study to apply PBM to estimate WEEE generation in

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
This brief white paper touches on processing, conveying, sorting and separation equipment being used to convert end of life electronics devices to usable form by extracting components and raw materials.
Production and use of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) have been clearly increased over the last years. This has led to huge amounts of waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The management of WEEE is a very critical and important n
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.
Using Hampshire County Council (HCC) as a case study, this paper evaluates and discusses the estimated impacts of the so-called digital switchover (DSO) (scheduled for 2012 in Hampshire) on Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in England and the UK.
