  • Product Description

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams and is fast emerging a major challenge in urban areas. This book intends to provide insights into the emerging challenges of e-waste generation and management in Bangalore, the hub of IT industry. The book documents important aspects of e-waste management in Bangalore and adds to the knowledge and database. The findings highlight research issues, which are of critical importance.In Bangalore, E-waste management is largely unorganized besides being in the initial stages of working towards proper management. Survey indicated 226 informal enterprises as against 6 formal recycling units. There are no accurate estimates available on the quantity of e-waste generated and recycled. An increase in exported e-waste is exempted from basic customs duty, making it convenient for import of computers under EXIM policy 2000. However the legislation on Hazardous Waste Management and Handling Rules (Amended Rules 2003), puts restrictions on import and export of e-waste. The analysis will help policy makers and academicians working in waste management.
