The world is sitting on 53.6 million tonnes of e-waste, which is bound to double in the next 16years; what is shocking is that 85% of it is lost globally. As circular economy enthusiasts, this is exactly what excites us- opening doors for a $50 bn economy if e-waste is handled responsibly.
Some of the major problems that have gone unaddressed are the leakages due to lack of proper supply chain in reuse/recycle markets.
With ever increasing use of gadgets coupled with rapidly evolving tech and planned obsolescence being built into electronic systems systems they are bound to replaced quickly, we are sitting on a landmine of e-waste which if not managed adequately is an impending disaster waiting to explode.
