Automotive Remanufacturing Industry moved by the problems with landfill of electronic waste by Peter Bartel

Vehicles are becoming more electrically and electronically controlled, so the difference between automotive cores and defect electronic devices is reducing. The volume of e-waste being generated is growing rapidly due to the wide use of equipment, both in developed and in developing countries.

The amount of e-waste in the European Union was estimated at between 8.3 and 9.1 million tonnes in 2005 and is expected to reach some 12.3 million tonnes in 2020. Currently e-waste is exported to countries that are not likely to possess the infrastructure and societal safety nets to prevent harm to human health and the environment, due to factors such as exports being less expensive than managing the waste domestically.
