China's Electronic Waste Hell (15 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   20 May 2011   / 10253 views

China is the world’s second largest producer of E-Waste producing over 1 million tons a year. Besides, China is the largest importer of E-Waste from all over the world. It gathers 70% of electronic garbage each year (20-25 million tons).

 

It is more expensive to dispose E-Waste in the West than to ship it to China. This country has accepted over 500 million TVs, 500 million PCs, 500 million washing machines, tens of millions of cell phones and 4 million refrigerators in the last 8 years.At the same time electronic waste is a very important source of profit to Chinese people. They recover hazardous elements and heavy metals from the E-products and return them to the market.
