Abstract

ABSTRACT Due to the rapid increase of technology its regular up gradation and a high rate of obsolescence in the electronics industry have generated a new waste stream known electronic wastes (e-waste) in developed and developing countries in the world. E-waste includes a variety of components, some of them contains toxic materials that can have a harmful impact on human health and the environment if not managed properly. This creates a new environmental challenge called e-waste management. In India, e-waste management assumes greater consequence not only due to the creation of its own e-waste but also because of the dumping of e-waste from developed countries. This is combined with India's lack of suitable infrastructure and techniques for its disposal and reprocessing. There should be a separate assembling system and an administrative mechanism to handle them properly for a sustainable development. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to identify the major types of e-wastes, their different waste components, and current e-waste management practices in India.
