The way sustainability is shaping manufacturing
E-waste is a growing problem for the tech industry and a contributor to climate change. In 2020, the volume of electronic waste generated was 55.5 million metric tons (Statista, 2020) and it is estimated that this number will double by 2030 (The Conversation, 2020). In 2019, only 17.4% of e-waste was formally collected and recycled (The Conversation, 2020). What happened with the remainder is not clear.
