Managing Director, Array Consortium
Myself Anjuman Akter on behalf of Array Consortium Limited, we would like to find the solution of e-waste management hence to provide a better way to collect the wastages from all the electronic devices, which tend to be dumped Read More
How It All Starts
Every year, hundreds of tones worth of smartphones, tablets, laptops, headphones and many more are stopped being used or thrown away completely because they’re either outdated, broken or get unusable.
What Are These E-Waste Made Of
Electronic internals are mostly made of precious metals, such as, copper, silver and gold due to their high conductivity and non-corrosive properties.
1 ton of mined land would produce about 5 grams of gold, whereas 1 ton of electronics can contain about 350 grams of gold.
Current solution to harnessing these precious metals from e-waste is by sending them overseas to poorer countries with fewer environmental regulations. These countries use very toxic and dreadful processes- letting a whole landfill of e-waste burn and later collecting them- which process poisonous and life-threatening byproducts, polluting the air, and even the water streams nearby the area.
Improve the environment by promoting waste recycling activities in the country
Conduct research and experiments regarding solid waste management, recycling, clinical and hazardous waste management, waste water treatment, as well as organic farming.
Develop community--private sector--municipal partnerships towards the improvement of the urban environment
Create job opportunities by promoting the recycling of waste.
