How Can We Solve the E-Waste Crisis?
A significant proportion of the world’s waste is e-waste; waste which results from discarded electronic devices. Per capita annual e-waste generated globally has increased from 5.3 to 7.3 kilogrammes. In total, this amounts to 50 million tonnes of e-waste per year, which weighs more than all the commercial airliners ever made. If current trends continue, global e-waste production will reach 120 million tonnes.
