E- waste Recycling

Currently, e-waste recycling, if done using environmentally sound management practices makes very good economic sense. This may not be so in the future.

Report in the link below highlights the fact that though constituents of electric – drive vehicles batteries (mostly nickel from Nickel Metal Hydride batteries and cobalt from Li-ion batteries) currently provide an economic incentive for recycling, battery designs are changing so that they contain less-valuable materials and this is a concern for the economics of future recycling efforts.

From my perspective, the more e-waste taken off our streets and dump sites the safer the people and the environment will be. Lagos should not delay in their objective to develop a statewide e-waste management strategy as there is a lot to gain socially, economically and environmentally speaking.
