Electronic waste, "e-waste" or "Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment" ("WEEE") is a waste consisting of any broken or unwanted electrical or electronic appliance. It is a point of concern considering that many components of such equipment are considered toxic and are not biodegradable.

8 SOURCES OF E-WASTE. IT & Telecom Equipments Large Household Appliances
Small Household Appliances Consumer & Lighting Equipments Electrical & Electronic Tools Toys, Leisure & Sports Equipment Medical Devices Monitoring & Control Instruments

9 E-Waste contains several different substances
IS IT HAZARDOUS WASTE ? E-Waste contains several different substances and chemicals, many of which are toxic and are likely to create adverse impact on environment and health, if not handled properly. However, classification of E-waste as hazardous or otherwise shall depend upon the extent of presence of hazardous constituents in it.

10 Effects On Environment.
Pollution of Ground-Water. Acidification of soil. Air Pollution. E-Waste accounts for 40 percent of the lead and 75 percent of the heavy metals found in landfills.

11 Effects On Human Health.
Damage to central and peripheral nervous systems, blood systems and kidney damage. Affects brain development of children. Chronic damage to the brain. Respiratory and skin disorders due to bioaccumulation in fishes. Asthmatic bronchitis. DNA damage. Reproductive and developmental problems. Immune system damage. Lung Cancer. Damage to heart, liver and spleen.

12 E-Waste Management. Inventory management,
In industries management of e-waste should begin at the point of generation. This can be done by waste minimization techniques and by sustainable product design. Waste minimization in industries involves adopting: Inventory management, Production-process modification, Volume reduction, Recovery and reuse.

13 The Current Scenario in India.
E-WASTE PILING UP Mumbai at present tops the list Mumbai - 11, 017 tonnes Delhi - 9,730 tonnes Bangalore - 4,648 tonnes Chennai - 4,132 tonnes Kolkata - 4,025 tonnes Ahmedabad - 3,287 tonnes Hyderabad - 2,833 tonnes Pune - 2,584 tonnes Surat - 1,836 tonnes

14 The Total E-Waste in India has been Estimated to be 1,46,180 Tonnes per year.

15 Recycling Of Technology Currently Used in India.
Treatment Options Of E-Waste. Land filling. Incineration. Technologies In India. E-waste trade value chain. Environmentally Sound E-waste Treatment Technology. CRT treatment technology. Technology Currently Used in India. Decontamination. Dismantling. Pulverization/ Hammering. Shredding. Density separation using water.

16 Approach and Methodology.
Step 1: Identify the E-waste category item. Step 2: Identify the E-waste composition or determine it. Step 3: Identify possible hazardous content in E-waste. Step 4: Identify, whether the E-waste component is hazardous or the entire E-waste item is hazardous.

17 LEGISLATION Basel Convention
1. Trans-boundary movement of hazardous substances. 2. Ban on land, water fill 3. Environment friendly disposal European Union, Japan, Korea 1. WEEE Directive w.e.f. 1st July,2007 2. Extended Producers Responsibility-Take Back 3. Treatment by the designated facilities 3. RoHS compliant products from January, 2007 17

18 LEGISLATION India The Ministry of Environment and Forests in India is currently drafting “WEEE" legislation. The new legislation to hold e-waste producers accountable for their action. E-waste/ components, which are hazardous in nature need to be covered under the purview of The Hazardous Waste (Management and handling) Rules 2003 The Batteries (Management and Handling) Rules, 2001 The Ozone Depleting Substances (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000. Greenpeace International is pushing for more stricter legislation. 18

19 CASE STUDY. Company’s Name: Features Of Infotrek:
