Electronic waste (e-waste) is the biggest problem around the world due to the rapid economic growth, increasing urbanization and globalization. From electronics to electrical, from mobile phones to laptops, every equipment adds up a aid in our life through its fast, effective and quick processing making electronic industry the world’s largest and fastest growing enterprise. But these add up to the good and better lifestyle with ease, faster acquisition, security, exchange of information and comfort whilst they are not piled-up for their re-use, re-sale, recycle and disposal, constituting the E-waste. In particular, today the industries or the companies involved in the proper handling, disposal and management of the e-waste have no fulfilling and effective strategies to handle the growing chaos of electrical and electronic waste. The higher consumption of these electrical and electronic goods needs to be balanced on the contrary with their proper management.
