The Technical Insights Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2006 Quarterly Analyst Briefing presentation on the Electronics Waste Recovery Market to be held on November 8, 2006 at 1:00 pm EST.
The emerging area of electronic waste (e-waste) recovery is attracting increasing attention as governments of several developed countries issue directives to address the environmental hazards posed by existing methods to dispose waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Conventional methods, such as disposal in landfills and incineration, are both potentially damaging to the environment due to the leaching and emission of certain toxic substances, respectively. However, in an effort to protect the environment and to establish sustainable electronics manufacturing, the concept of electronics waste recovery is gaining prominence. There is also more interest shown by major electronics manufacturers in electronics recycling as part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives.
"It is important for recyclers to anticipate the adaptations they might need to make to their processes in the next few years, as the incoming composition of e-waste is bound to change as well as develop secondary markets for the materials recovered," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Hari Ramamoorthy.
Highlights of the briefing include advancements, emerging trends, drivers and challenges affecting the electronics recycling industry. It focuses on examining the growth drivers and the immediate technology challenges faced by the electronics recycling industry, which drives the electronic recycling markets. It also provides information of major corporate and academic institutions involved in the development of advanced recycling technologies.

This briefing will benefit electronic recyclers, recycling equipment manufacturers, electrical & electronic equipment manufacturers, corporate social responsibility groups of electronic companies and researchers by discussing emerging trends, applications and research directions in the Electronics Recycling Industry.
"Directives such as WEEE and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) have firmly placed the responsibility on electronic equipment manufacturers to adopt design concepts with end-of-life recycling in mind,” says Ramamoorthy.
