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
China has set a goal of establishing a Circular Economy policy for recycling resources in the near future. To further efforts to build a circular society, we analyzed the current status of E-waste recycling and related social issues, including the case of

Diverting waste to destinations other than landfill is not only financially prudent but it is also the environmentally sound thing to do. Used electronics, often called “e-waste” or “WEEE” (waste electric and electronic equipment) are problemati
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 new EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE2) will provide an extra multi-million dollar boost to the recycling market.

One route to reducing electronic waste, increasing product reuse, is dependent on the quality and functionality of discarded electronic goods (core), about which little is known or understood.
Data erasure from solid state drives v. hard disk drives presents different challenges that will become mmore important as SSD popularity grows.
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
