Understanding the product's `end-of-life' is important to reduce the environmental impact of the products' final disposal. When the initial stages of product development consider end-of-life aspects, which can be established by ecodesign
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.
An electronics recycling facility began operation at the municipal landfill site for the City of Edmonton, Canada in March 2008 with the goal of processing 30,000 tonnes of electronic wastes per year. Of the many by-products from the process, brominated f

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
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

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.
The air pollution generated at electronics waste dismantling sites may have a dangerous impact on the health of nearby residents.
