Editorial for Volume 10 Number 2: Surveying the Transportation of the E-Waste
Keywords:Transportation problem, E-waste, Reverse logistics
High levels of consumption of electrical and electronic equipment, together with the decline of their useful time of life (obsolescence), has led to a progressive growth in the generation of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), also known as e-waste. The problems involving inadequate management of these are reflected mainly in the negative impact on the environment, but it also entails a waste of opportunities for reuse of components that can still generate value. This article presents a review of the literature on the studies that address the appropriate process of recovery of WEEE, i.e., the process of Reverse Logistics, and identifies the trends of study on the subject and proposed new lines of research in the management of the WEEE.
