Nascorps International focuses on e-waste. What is e-waste?
E-waste or electronic waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. Used electronics which are destined for refurbishment, reuse, resale, salvage recycling through material recovery, or disposal are also considered e-waste.
Informal processing of e-waste in developing countries can lead to adverse human health effects and environmental pollution.
Electronic scrap components, such as CPU, contain potentially harmful materials such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants.
Recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to health of workers and their communities.
The issue of e-waste itself tends to overwhelm most people due to the enormity of the problem. However, most of the people do not realize that e-waste management is possible.
