Electronic Waste (E-waste)
E-waste is any electrical or electronic equipment that's been
discarded. E-waste contains a list of chemicals that are
harmful to people and the environment, like: mercury, lead,
beryllium, brominated flame retardants, and cadmium. When
electronics are mishandled during disposal, these chemicals
end up in our soil, water, and air.
Examples of E-waste: TV appliances, computers, laptops,
tablets, mobile phones, white goods - for example, fridges,
washing machines, dryers - home entertainment and stereo
systems, toys, toasters and kettles.
Electronic pollution is the form of pollution caused by the discarded
electrical or electronic devices.
The Biggest Exporters of e-waste in the world in 2019 in tonnes
Father and mother of Radioactivity
They experienced radiation sickness and Marie Curie died of
aplastic anemia in 1934.
Radioactive waste is a type of hazardous waste that contains
radioactive material. Radioactive waste is a result of many activities,
including nuclear medicine, nuclear research, nuclear power
generation, rare-earth mining, and nuclear weapons reprocessing.
Radioactive waste
Why is radioactive waste dangerous?
Radioactive waste is hazardous because it
emits radioactive particles, which if not properly managed
can be a risk to human health and the environment.
What is the largest source of radioactive waste?
Radioactive waste comes from a number of sources. In countries with nuclear power
plants, nuclear armament, or nuclear fuel treatment plants, the majority
of waste originates from the nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear weapons reprocessing.
