Scenario of E-waste in India and application of new recycling approaches for E-waste management


Increasing trends of e-waste implication and hazard of indecorous handling is a global menace. Both the developed and developing countries like India are going through the problem of e-waste management. The rapid growth of technology accompanied with up gradation in technical innovation and high rate of obsolescence in electronic industry has made e-waste as one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world. E-waste includes diverse range of electronic and electrical equipment’s many of which contain toxic materials which can create an irreversible impact to human health and environment if improperly disposed. In this paper an attempt is made to discuss the scenario of e-waste in India and some new recycling approaches and technology for the proper management of ewaste, thereby discarding into environment is either nil or minimal. The Paper also focusses on the health hazards of e-waste and various management methods for handling this hazardous waste. Thus finding a sustainable solution for handling the mass volume of e-waste generated without creating an impact to the environment and public health is the need of the hour.
