  • R. Devika, S. Muthuselvan, S. Rajaprakash


Fast development of technology and venturing of new products in the market has increased the production of electrical and electronic devices in turn increased the E-waste generations. The E-waste contains harmful contaminants such as polychlorinated, polybrominated, heavy metals, toxic gases etc. and therefore they are classified as hazardous waste. The global issue about E-waste is now a known factor due to environmental implications and therefore the developing countries framed laws and acts and indicated that the producers are sole responsible for all the damages. E-waste management involves complex and employability of new technologies and equipment and it should ensure proper handling and disposal under Government Act. E-waste management is considered as secondary resource since the recovery of elements varies from noble metals to trace metals which can be recycled and reused.
