Project Description and Objectives

Electronic and electrical products, such as refrigerators, washing machines, mobile phones, personal computers, printers, and televisions, are ubiquitous in the modern society. Along with economic growth, ownership of electronics has been rapidly increasing around the world. At the same time, continuing technological innovation has resulted in early obsolescence of many electronic/electrical products; e.g., the average lifespan (2 yr) of a new computer in 2005 was less than half of that (4.5 yr) in 2000, and has been continually declining. A combination of increasing ownership and shortened lifespan has led to rapid growth in the amounts of unwanted and obsolete electronics (commonly known as e-waste). It was estimated that the rate of e-waste generation globally was approximately 40 million tons yr–1.  


In this study, three different techniques are used for E-waste Recycling .


Eligibility Requirements
