A study published in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Review
by the University of Sheffield’s Professor Lenny Koh has set out a
possible methodology to give organisations guidance and information on
different waste streams. The method will support decisions around
investment priorities by providing information on “the amount of
materials that are available in waste streams, their material
composition, the price volatility of recovered materials, degree of
purity required, and more.”
In particular, the research
considered 14 popular products including TVs, computer monitors, mobile
phones and solar panels. For each potential waste stream, the
methodology can estimate the value in terms of potential revenue.
Koh and her co-authors estimated that
the value of e-waste streams was around €2bn in 2014 and predicted it
to rise to more than €3.5bn by 2020.
