A. JAYAPRADHA AND J. ABBAS MOHAIDEEN

Abstract

The e-waste management which is a crucial problem in this digital era gains significant momentum as the electronic products are reaching their end of life phase at a rapid rate due to the advancement in science and technology and change in life style of an individual. The total amount of e-waste generated in India is estimated to be 8, 00,000 lakh tonnes per annum and out of this only 15-20% of the e-waste is recycled formally. It is an imperative prerequisite to bridge this prevailing gap between e-waste generation and recycling. This can be accomplished by proper routing the e-waste for appropriate recycling and establishing a system of accountability in e-waste management. The paper focuses on the current status of e-waste management in India and few suggestions to potentially improve the quality of existing system by involving producers, recyclers (covering both informal and formal sectors from small and medium scale enterprises) and other stakeholders in the value chain and it also stress the hazards involved in improper handling of ewaste in the informal sectors.
