Biodegradable Materials: A New Approach to Solve E-Waste Problems
Abstract: Electronic waste also termed as e-waste is one of the utmost rapidly growing sources of waste material along different countries. It is very much hazardous waste mainly consists of discarded electronic and electrical equipment. Most of the emerging countries including India are facing immense challenges associated to the huge generation of e-waste. The management of e-waste in problematic and costly. Illegal importation of e-waste from other countries is also a headache for developing countries. The existing process of e-waste management can cause potential risk to both human health and the environment due to different toxic elements present in e-waste. So, several new ideas should be encompassed with the target to decrease the amount of e-waste generation along with inclusion of biodegradable raw materials in electronics devices manufacturing. Because only biodegradable material can control the release of toxic element to nature. In this report, we have found that these issues should be addressed urgently and some probable solution should be introduced to avoid its harmful future consequences.
