Algorithmic Approach for E-Waste Recycling

  • Swapnali Lotlikar, Dr. Ajay Khunteta


Mobile phones are efficient to process millions of calculations per second. They are built with myriad parts such as printed circuit board,keypad,sensors, camera etc. According to Indian government e-waste directive 2016, in order to control the e-waste pollution,manufacturers should accumulate the end-of-life products and effectively enhance the features for recycling mechanism. Image analytics do not provide much assistance to recognize any damaged mobile phones. This paper proposes an algorithm which will help refurbishing industries to reuse undamaged parts of mobiles. This algorithm can be scaled up to all types of e-waste like laptops,desktops, refrigerators, microwavesetc.
