Abstract: Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) has been on the agenda for more than 25 years. However, organisations struggle with the development and implementation of national e-waste collection and recycling systems due to the complex legal, technical, environmental and economic aspects of take-back and recycling. Since the materials composition of WEEE is changing rapidly, there is no ‘one size fits all’ model in terms of technical solutions. The discarding behaviour and trade in legal and illegal flows of e-waste to outside the EU affect the volume and quality of secondary raw materials available for recycling. The purpose of this handbook is to assist the manifold of readers in dealing better with collection and treatment of e-waste. The material presented in this second edition is reflecting recent changes and developments from a global perspective. The editors hope that its contents contributes to the achievement of the sustainable development goals and the achievement of higher environmental gains and lower costs from the collection and recovery of valuable, critical and hazardous materials from e-waste in particular.
