Paradigm Shift in E-waste Management: Vision for the Future addresses the challenges in the management of electronic wastes in various forms. The book describes resource-efficient and circular e-waste management processes including valorization amalgamating the sustainable benefits of electronic component recycling, industrial symbiosis, green technology implementation, and efficient supply chain networks with a vision towards year 2025. It further explains e-waste recycling technologies, supply chain aspects, e-waste disposal in IT industries, and trans-boundary movement issues including policy concerns supported by global case studies and benchmark practices. Further, the book illustrates resource recovery from e-waste, sustainability of e-waste recycling, circular economy in e-waste and so forth.
- Covers intricacies of e-waste management with an outlook towards a checkpoint of sustainable development goals (SDGs) in 2025.
- Describes the global status of e-waste recycling and management with country-specific contributions.
- Includes focus on policy tools such as EPR, ARF, policy gaps, and the informal sector activities.
- Offers detailed information about advanced green and smart technologies for e-waste valorization and management.
- Explores urban mining, sustainability, and circular economic approaches.
This book is of interest to graduate students and researchers in environmental engineering, waste management, urban mining, circular economy, waste processing, electronics and telecommunication engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, and chemical engineering.
