The objectives of the present study are to estimate future quantities of electronic waste (e-waste), and to the estimate the total cost for e-waste recycling in California. To generate estimates, we used a time-series materials flow analysis model (MFAM). The model estimates future e-waste quantities by modeling the stages of production, usage, and disposal. We consider four scenarios for the estimation of future e-waste generation. To calculate cost for recycling, we used technical cost… CONTINUE READING
