The term E-waste isused in almost all types of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) that could enter the waste stream. Rapid product innovations and replacement in ICT (Information and Communications Technology), and office equipment, combined with the migration from analogue to digital technologies, that are fuelling the exponential growth of electronic waste. Moreover, economies of scale has led the way to lower prices for many electrical devices, which has increased the global demand for many products that eventually end up as e-waste.
E-waste has a complex composition of both valuable and hazardous substances, which requires specialized and high-tech methods of processing that maximize resource recovery and minimize the harm to humans or the environment.
Lack of awareness for efficient recycling, high cost of processing and lack of e-waste collection centersare some of the major factors that hinder overall growth of the market.
