The E-Plastics Epidemic is Daunting

The rise in electronic devices has led to more e-plastics from discarded electronics like computers and smartphones. In 2020, global e-waste hit 53.6 million metric tons, projected to reach 74.7 million metric tons by 2030. Most of this e-waste is harmful e-plastics.

Why Is This Important NOW?


The Basel Treaty

In January 2021, amendments to the Basel Convention went into effect to begin controlling trade in mixed and contaminated plastic wastes (Annex II, Y48) for the first time. For most countries, this means trade in such materials would be subject to government notification and the receiving country’s consent prior to exportation. It also means any such trade can only take place if the recycling operations involved were deemed by the authorities of both countries to be environmentally sound (Dehmey & Puckett, 2024).

Certification Compliance

e-Stewards and R2 are both working on the immediate task of helping their facilities comply with the Basel plastic amendments and get ready for the forthcoming e-waste amendments to the Basel Convention coming in 2025 to ensure that all e-recycling is always conducted in a legal and environmentally sound manner, wherever it takes place globally.  Certified companies in violation may be in danger of losing their e-Stewards and R2 certification (Dehmey & Puckett, 2024).

Kelly Adels Hess & Clive Hess

"We saw an opportunity to solve an industry challenge by creating the first domestic, sustainable, single-solution e-waste plastics program that reduces the amount of plastic negatively impacting the environment, while also making it advantageous for companies to recycle and reuse. It’s truly a win for everyone involved.”
