Informal recycling or disposing of such items pose serious threat to human health and the environment. Strict enforcement of waste disposal laws are needed along with the implementation of health assessment studies to mitigate inappropriate management of end-of-life electronic wastes in developing countries.
Keywords: e-waste, environmental impact, health effects, Indian scenario Introduction India has observed monumental progress in information and communication technology, leading to a tremendous increase in electronic equipment usage, especially of computers and mobile phones. The expansion of production and consumption of electronic equipment has been exponential over the last two decades.
E-waste management poses a great challenge due to growing quantities of waste. E-waste is one of the most complex waste streams due to a wide variety of products including assembled or highly integrated systems.
In developing countries like India, e-waste units engage men, women and children for sorting and recovery of the materials without adopting protection and safeguards measures. Motivated by the minimization of environmen- their own facilities or collaborate with other producers to create tal effects caused by the generated e-waste, many technological and operate such facilities. E-waste coming from residencies are changes have been effectuated. The following are indicated: collected when these products are not used anymore or when con- sumers download new ones.
Therefore, tion, but Li increase , etc.
Some indicative results of the above pressures are: They plan the disassembly by reducing the number of the plastic resins in their products and reuse their parts . This legislation also directs striction on Hazardous Substances. This system Summarizing the above, e-waste separation from the rest of solid is an example for the individual responsibility of producers, from waste and their recycling for the recovery of valuable raw materi- the moment they have the natural and inancial responsibility for als and basic metals is essential.
The management system has to their products recycling. References 1. Terazono, S. Murakami, N. Abe, B. Inanc, Y. Moriguchi and S. PDF, Current status and research on e-waste issues in Asia, J Mater Cycles 5.
