Over the last few decades, electronic waste has emerged as one of the major waste streams of concern among the various solid waste streams. During the recent pandemic, with the need of working from home and needed collaborations online, professionals around the world had to update and buy new tools to be ready for the new normal of working remotely on a regular basis. This also contributed to a significant increase in the e-waste quantity in the waste stream. As the world is moving toward renewable energy sources for energy needs, Solar Panels and Wind Turbines are being used extensively around the world to meet the renewable energy targets. Waste from these renewable energy sectors is also showing up in significant quantity in the waste stream these days.

Specifically, the webinar focuses on:
1. Where the industry is today in managing this waste stream?
2. What help does the industry need to manage it better if needed?
3. How academia and other stakeholders/agencies can help the cause of better management of this waste stream including resource recovery of precious materials from this waste stream?
