Waste of Electrical and electronic equipment and social impacts
Friday, December 4, 2020 6:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time (Toronto, GMT-05:00)
Tens of millions of metric tons of electronic waste are generated annually worldwide. Due to its complex nature and diversity of materials, it is very hard to recycle electronic waste properly. On top of containing various hazardous substances, the quantities of electronic waste tend to increase years after years. This tendency is caused by the mass consumption of devices. Still, in our days, the vast majority of electronic waste collection methods are not even documented.
Too many quantities of e-waste end up in landfills, are illegally exported and are not safely recycled.
This presentation will describe the current situation, show the current legal framework, and initiate the conversation for practical solutions.
