About Symposium
E-Waste In Circular Economy
This symposium aims to create a discourse and encourage all relevant stakeholders to come forward and participate in fostering a sustainable and circular E-Waste management system. In the circular economy model, we suggest to extend the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) in waste management parlance to 5Rs (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse/Repair, Refurbish, Recycle) for E-Waste management. With limited amount of many of the critical and nonrenewable raw materials used in the manufacturing of Electrical and Electronic equipment’s we simply cannot recycle our way out of the E-Waste crisis. We have to think in a more systemic, holistic, sustainable and circular approach to the problem of E-Waste and this will start with a paradigm shift in the approach of humans by refusing to continue with our obsession with irresponsible production and consumption of EEE, followed by reduction of our dependence on it and focusing more on reusing stuff by repairing them. Refurbishing old equipment’s with new parts to extend their life span is also a significant step towards sustainable E-Waste management and finally we adopt the principles of recycling to recover valuable metals by using the end of life electrical and electronics equipment’s as urban mines. With this 5R approach we can develop a long term and sustainable solution to the crisis of E-Waste, which will not only ease the problem of critical raw materials and obliterate toxic waste but also create jobs and prosperity for the people working in this sector.

We invite all responsible citizens to participate in this symposium and share their ideas of E-Waste in circular economy.
