The vastly increasing amounts of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has made it imperative to develop systems that can guarantee selective collection and correct treatment of such waste. The European Union (EU) Directive 2002/96/EC appl

Environmental and economic evaluation of cathode ray tube (CRT) funnel glass waste management option

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

Electronic waste has been increasing proportionally with the technology. So, nowadays, it is necessary to consider the useful life, recycling, and final disposal of these equipment. Metals, such as Au, Ag, Cu, Sn and Ni can be found in the printed circuit

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

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

Start-up ventures anticipate increased electronics scrap availability in the U.S. will permit introducing domestic refining into the supply chain.

The emission rates of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) from electric/electronic products during their use and disposal were estimated. E-wastes, including televisions and refrigerators, gathered at recycling centers were also analyzed to estimate th

Human exposure to pollutants from e-waste is an important scientific issue for their health effects. In this study, organohalogen pollutants in human serum sample from an e-waste dismantling site (n = 35) and a control site (n = 21), both located in Tianj

Platinum group metals find extensive use in automobile catalysts, space materials and cancer therapy. Their natural resources are limited thus their recovery from the secondary sector has assumed a great significance. Liquid–liquid extraction provide
