Toxic metals in WEEE: Characterization and substance flow analysis in waste treatment processes

Science of The Total Environment

Masahiro Oguchi, Hirofumi Sakanakura, Atsushi Terazono

Highlights

► Appropriate management of toxic metals contained in WEEE is important during recycling and treatment of WEEE.
► CRT TVs contain large amount of toxic metals with high concentration and thus appropriate management is highly important.
► Mid-sized equipment is a future target for managing toxic metals in WEEE because the total amount is not negligible.
► Changes in the flows of toxic metals will occur when treatment processes are modified to emphasize resource recovery.
► The flows of toxic metals and valuable materials should be managed simultaneously in recycling and treatment of WEEE.
