E waste is among the fastest growing waste streams across the world today fuelled by exponential growth in the use of electronic equipment especially PCs (Personal computers) and their rapid rate of obsolescence. The disposal of e waste is a major problem because of the presence of toxic elements such as lead mercury and cadmium. The backyard recycling operations are mostly rudimentary in nature causing extensive damage to both the environment and the human health. Therefore there is an urgent need to adopt an environment friendly and simple technology for recycling these wastes. There is also a need to create awareness among stakeholders including workers involved in e waste recycling units. The book addresses these and also covers international best practices and regulations on e waste. The book is designed to fulfill the much awaited need for a handy scientific and easy to understand comprehensive handbook for professionals hardware developers PC manufacturing companies IT (Information Technology) companies ministries corporate houses policy makers researchers small scale enterprises engineering colleges schools non governmental organizations banks and recyclers. Besides the sheer breadth of the topics covered ample case studies using data for India make this book a relevant and an authentic reference book. 356 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 70057
