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
The volume of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has been rapidly growing in recent years. In the European Union (EU), legislation promoting the collection and recycling of WEEE has been in force since the year 2003. Yet, both current and re
Panel (P) and funnel (F) glasses from Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) have been used to obtain glass foams by a simple and economic processing route, consisting of direct heating the glass powders at relatively low temperatures (650–750 °C) using different foaming
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
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
Data erasure from solid state drives v. hard disk drives presents different challenges that will become mmore important as SSD popularity grows.
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.

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
