A Case Study E-Waste: A mixed Blessing !! What E-waste exactly is ? “A lot of people doesn’t know nor sense the problems behind the e-waste and how they affect each part of the environment around us.” How big the problem is , can you imagine !!! The glut of E-waste is a primary source of heavy metals and halogenated substances contained in the municipal waste stream. Due to the volume and variety of these substances, incineration of E-waste is particularly dangerous. municipal of E-waste “But, the most important question now, what is the severity reached from this disposal process of E-waste? And what are poisons produced by E-waste and how they affect us and surrounding?” Poisons in E-waste ! Lead
Hexavalent Chromium (Chromium VI)
Brominated Flame Retardants
Plastics Effect of E-waste recycling on workers in this field: bad methods of disposing of e-waste !! What is the environmental impact of disposing electronics into the environment without any precaution? Electronic devices consist of a variety of metals.

Some of these metals are harmful to environment and public sanitation when badly managed.

These metals include lead, nickel, cadmium, and mercury.

Disposing of electronics without reusing them is a great waste of resources. Examples of the wasted resources due to not reusing electronics and products Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 US homes in a year.

One metric ton of circuit boards can contain 40 to 800 times the amount of gold and 30 to 40 times the amount of copper mined from one metric ton of ore in the US. E-waste exporting: The last few decades have seen a phenomenal increase in the development and use of electronic goods.

This led to more e-waste. Exporting this waste to less developed countries has been one way in which the
industrialized world has avoided having to deal with the problem of expensive disposal and recycling of these products.

Cheap labor costs and lax laws make exporting e-waste profitable.

The toxins inside these products and electronics can affect people’s health seriously when badly managed. Some methods of solving e-waste exports impact: Reselling reusable parts and recycling can prevent the environmental damage caused by disposing them into unmanaged landfills.

This can help people in developing countries use advanced technology at reduced prices. Reverse thinking .. E waste as an opportunity ! E-waste can be seen as a potent resource waiting for technology to find a way to convert millions of tonnes into reusable, recycled energy Benefits From recycling diminished demand for new products and their commensurate requirement for virgin raw materials

Reduce the large amount of pure water and electricity for associated manufacturing

diminished use of landfills.

availability of technology to wider swaths of society due to greater affordability of products

Use of domestic markets for recycled raw materials Social responsibilities .. Organizations Vs. Individuals What can organizations do?

What can individuals do? What can organizations do? try to take some abstract points from that part in my documentation What can individuals do? Buying Green Following  the mantra of the 3 Rs-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Successful Zero E-waste Recycling projects A-Attero E-waste Recycling plant at Roorkee: 1-BackGround Attero Recyclingwas founded by Nitin Gupta and Rohan Gupta in the year 2007.

with an objective of Providing an environmentally friendly solution to the problem of e-waste.

Attero Recycling, is an integrated end-to-end electronic waste (e-waste) recycling company 2-Beliefs A-Mission: To become a leader in recycling e-waste and resolve the e-waste crisis in the most efficient and environmentally sound way B-Vision: To reduce the risks faced by the society at large, due to the burden on the environment, resulting from unsafe e-waste handling. 
To make e-cycling the norm.
To propagate ecological sustainability initiatives and help our clients give back - to us and to nature. c- The Factory Electrical & Electronic Waste recycling plant in Roorkee spread over an area of more than 100,000 sq ft.

The plant processes WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), that are used computers, cell phones, network gear, TVs etc. in an environmentally friendly manner with very high recycling efficiency D- Achievements Attero recognized as Tech Pioneer 2012 by WEF(world Economic Forum)

Attero was being selected among the top 9 Innovators in the Waste Management category at LAUNCH, a jointly supported initiative by NASA B-Egypt’ Egyptian national cleaner production center(ENCPC) A-Mission: Enhance the productivity and environmental performance of Egyptian companies and thus to create business opportunities for Egyptian Industries to contribute to their long-term competitiveness on the national and global markets.
