Globally growing e-waste

With time the demand of electronics in the market is striking this has led to an increased production of electronics and a shortage of the raw materials. Here is where the recycled e-waste is used. If recycled and used properly the problem of raw material shortage can easily be resolved, but this approach is not being followed. The recycling process of e-waste is going on, but the ratio of e-waste generated and e-waste recycled has large variations. In 2016, only 20% of the e-waste was recycled and valuable elements were reclaimed, the rest of the waste leached into the water bodies which caused their contamination as they were discarded into the landfills.
