Characterizing of Emissions from Open Burning of Electronic Waste using TG-GC-MS System

Mar 27, 2023 | Jun Wang

Electronic waste (e-waste) is currently the fastest growing hazardous waste stream that continues to be a challenging concern for the global environment and public health. The average useful life of electronic products has continued to decline, and obsolete products are being stored or discarded with increasing frequency. E-waste is hazardous, complex and expensive to treat in an environmentally sound manner. As a result, new challenges related to the management of e-waste have become apparent. Most electronic products contain a combination of hazardous materials, toxic materials, and valuable elements such as precious metals and rare earth elements. There are risks to human health associated with the disposal of E-waste in landfills, or treatment by incineration. Americans discard 400+ million electronic items per year recycling less than 20 percent in safe and sustainable manner. E-waste is exported from developed countries and processed informally using unsafe conditions in many regions of developing countries. A mixture of pollutants is released from these informal rudimentary operations. Exposure to e-waste recycling includes the dismantling of used electronics and the use of hydrometallurgical and pyrometallurgical processes, which emit toxic chemicals, to retrieve valuable components. Thermal analysis integrated with chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques are used to determine dangerous chemicals emitted during the burning of e-waste. The information is used to assess the risk of exposure of workers at these semi-formal recycling centers....
