Electronic waste pile-up sparks warnings
The pile up of electronic waste only more and more devices.
A whopping 52 percent of the 16- to 24-year-olds in the UK have 10 or more devices in your home, according to a survey by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Thirty-nine percent of 35 – to 44-year-olds have 10 or more devices, and 30 percent of people between the ages of 55 and 75.

- 45 percent have between two and five

Waste pile-up + the elements of conflict = opportunity
Each year, about 50 million tonnes of electronic and electrical waste (e-waste) produced, “has the same weight to all commercial aircraft ever built,” according to a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) — recycled, but only 20 per cent. At this rate, the amount of waste more than double by 2050, to 120 million tonnes a year.
in addition to the raw waste, mobile devices contain the “conflict elements” like gold, toxic elements such as arsenic and rare elements such as indium, the Royal Society of Chemistry said. “The natural sources of six elements, which can be executed in mobile phones within the next 100 years,” added to it.
But e-waste is an opportunity, according to the WEF, the values of the “waste” material at $62.5 billion, more than three times the annual production of the world of the silver-mines, and more than the gross domestic product of most countries.

“It is 100 times more gold in one Tonne of mobile phones than in one ton of gold ore is said,” the WEF.
And harvest the material from used electronics generates significantly less carbon dioxide emissions than the removal of the crust of the earth, the said Organisation.
