Challenges around E-waste Management

Amid growing global demand for electronic and electrical goods, E-waste continues to increase rapidly. E-waste contains rare metals such as copper, but also toxic materials such as mercury and lead, having harmful effects on environment and human health if it is not managed and recycled in an environmentally sound manner. Also, these goods are exported from developed countries to developing countries, and some cases observe inappropriate dismantling and recycling causing serious environmental pollution and human health hazard. We offer wide range of assistance in environmental recycling system development at international, regional and national level.
