E waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their useful life. Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, electronic discards are one of the fastest growing segments of our nation's waste stream. WEEE has been identified as one of the fastest growing sources of waste in the EU, and is estimated to be increasing by 16 to 28 per cent every five years. Within each sector a complex set of heterogeneous secondary wastes is created. Electronic wastes, e waste, e scrap, or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is a description of surplus, obsolete, broken or discarded electrical or electronic devices. Technically, electronic waste is the component which is dumped or disposed or discarded rather than recycled, including residue from reuse and recycling operations. Because loads of surplus electronics are frequently commingled (good, recyclable, and non recyclable), several public policy advocates apply the term e waste broadly to all surplus electronics. Uses & Application Electronic Waste â€“ or e waste â€“ is the term used to describe old, end of life electronic appliances such as computers, laptops, TVs, DVD players, mobile phones, mp3 players etc. which have been disposed of by their original users. While there is no generally accepted definition of e waste, in most cases, e waste comprises of relatively expensive and essentially durable products used for data processing, telecommunications or entertainment in private households and businesses. Market Survey WEEE has been identified as one of the fastest growing sources of waste in the India, and is estimated to be increasing by 16 28 per cent every five years. Within each sector a complex set of heterogeneous secondary wastes is created. Although treatment requirements are complicated, the sources from any one sector possess many common characteristics. However, there exist huge variations in the nature of electronic wastes between sectors, and treatment regimes appropriate for one cannot be readily transferred to another.
