Understanding e-Waste

khanija e-Waste recycling and collection centre in banglore

What is e-Waste?

With the rapid advancement in technology, the explosive sale of consumer electronics brings with it a big threat of becoming obsolete quickly, as each day we are upgrading ourselves and we dispose these products, even if they still work or have fallen into disuse.
E-waste (electronic waste) is essentially waste materials from broken or discarded electrical or electronic items and accessories such as batteries, wires, mobile phone handsets, laptops, PCs, TVs and other electronic devices.If not disposed of properly, they can poison air, water and soil. E-waste is one of the world’s fastest growing waste streams and poses a huge thereat to environment wherever it is dumped.

Go green save environment by recycling the electronic-waste products

About e-Waste Fact Sheet?

  • Up to 90% of the world’s electronic waste, worth nearly $19bn (£12bn), is illegally traded or dumped each year – UN Environment Programme (Unep).
  • The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that only 15-20% of e-waste is recycled, the rest of these electronics go directly into landfills and incinerators.
  • According to a report by UNEP titled, "Recycling - from E-Waste to Resources," the amount of e-waste being produced - including mobile phones and computers - could rise by as much as 500 percent over the next decade in some countries, such as India.
  • ASSOCHAM says less than 5% of India's total e-waste gets recycled due to absence of proper infrastructure, legislation and framework.India produces nearly 13 lakh MT of electronic waste every year.

What is the present scenario?

When it comes to managing e-waste, India is relying heavily on the unorganized sector which accounts for over 90 per cent of the entire e-waste recycling industry. The set-ups in the informal sector do not have the industry required standards of collecting and processing consumer’s e-waste.
Inefficient and polluting techniques are used to dismantle or recycle e-waste in the informal sector - where unskilled labourers use bare hands and no facemasks - that are gravely hazardous to the health as well as the environment. As a result, a major portion of the country’s eWaste ends up in landfills or with the informal sector. These crude methods not only release harmful toxins into the eco-system causing pollution, but also cause serious health hazards among workers.

The great global challenge e-waste graph

The great global challenge – E-waste

25 Oct

The e-waste problem is of global concern because of the nature of production and disposal of waste in a globalized world. It is difficult to quantify global e-waste amounts, but we do know that large volumes end up in places where processing occurs at a very rudimentary level. This raises concerns about resource efficiency and also the immediate concerns of the dangers to humans and the environment.

The illegal disposal of electronic appliances poses a threat to both human health and the environment. Yet still the pile continues to grow, a new UNEP report says. It says the world is currently generating 42 million tons of global electronic waste every year, and warns that growing demand could see that figure increase by 10 million tons annually over the next two years. Among the worst affected countries are Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, China, India, Pakistan and Ghana.

Save the environment simply by wasting less food recycling process-diagram

Save the environment simply by wasting less food

28 Dec

Producing, distributing, storing and cooking food uses energy, fuel and water. Each of these emits greenhouse gases contributing to climate change. Love Food Hate Waste has some great solutions to help us reduce the amount of food we throw away. Planning is everything. Think ahead to what the week has in store - look in the fridge, freezer and cupboard, make a simple list so you only buy what you need and make the most of what you have.

Apples last even longer when you keep them in the fridge – up to two weeks longer if loosely wrapped. And if they’ve had a knock, try putting them in a crumble, a sauce or start the day with a smoothie. Did you know food can be frozen any time before the ‘use by’ date on the label? Then when you have an evening where you don’t feel like cooking, take it out of the freezer, defrost and use within 24 hours. Ever thought of making the most of your potato peelings? Why not sprinkle with salt, pepper, chilli or whatever flavour takes your fancy and pop them in the oven. Free crisps the kids will love!

e-waste concerns and challenges

15 Jan

1. Accurate figures not available for rapidly increasing e-waste volumes—generated domestically and by imports.
2. Low level of awareness among manufacturers and consumers of the hazards of incorrect e-waste disposal.
3. No accurate estimates of the quantity of e-waste generated and recycled available in India.
4. Major portion of e-waste is processed by the informal (unorganised) sector using rudimentary techniques such as acid leaching and open-air burning, which results in severe environmental damage.
5. e-waste workers have little or no knowledge of toxins in e-waste and are exposed to health hazards.
6. High-risk backyard recycling operations impact vulnerable social groups like women, children and immigrant labourers.
7. Inefficient recycling processes result in substantial losses of material value and resources.
8. Cherry-picking by recyclers who recover precious metals (gold, platinum, silver, copper, etc) and improperly dispose of the rest, posing environmental hazards.
9. No specific legislation for dealing with e-waste at present .
