Electronic Waste Management (2nd Edition) – eBook PDF
Electronic Waste Management, 2nd Edition, (PDF) offers an updated overview across the world along with presenting new chapters on present issues in recycling and management of this waste.
Electronic waste, which counts everything from refrigerators to smartphones, is one of the world’s fastest-growing waste streams. Frequently these items are simply discarded as new technology becomes available. A large amount of electronic waste is generated globally and currently, only about 20% of it is recycled. The complicated mixture of materials and components within electronic waste makes it hard to manage and many of these components can put hazards to human health or the environment if not disposed of carefully.
There have been vital changes in the global approach to electronic waste management and the legislation around it after the publication of the first edition of Electronic Waste Management or eWaste Management.
This is an important reference not only for those working in recycling and waste management but also for those employed in manufacturing and product development who wish to study the full lifecycle of their products. It also offers valuable insights for policymakers developing more environmentally sound and sustainable systems and strategies for the management of electronic waste.
