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

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
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

Some modern so-called low carbon technologies are actually broadening concerns over future elemental sustainability for a wide range of elements.
The printed circuit board (PCB) is an important part of electrical and electronic equipment, and its disposal and the recovery of useful materials from waste PCBs (WPCBs) are key issues for waste electrical and electronic equipment. Waste PCB compositions
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.
