What Is E-Waste? A Biggest Concern
E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.”Laptops, Desktops, Monitors, TV, mobile phones and their spares and accessories are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, recycled.
E-waste has been one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the world. While e-waste contains valuable materials such as aluminum, copper, gold, palladium, and silver, it also contains harmful substances like cadmium, lead, and mercury. In the absence of proper awareness, disposing of e-waste
in landfills can result in toxic emissions to the air, water, and soil and pose serious health and environmental hazards.
Recycling Electronic Waste Advantages
Electrical waste contains hazardous but also valuable and scarce materials. Up to 60 elements can be found in complex electronics. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for future uses. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal are avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.
Under the guidelines of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India, E-Waste Management Rules, 2016 have been notified. IAPL Group stands committed to implement E-Waste Rules.
