It is estimated that the country will be producing more than 6 million tons of electronic discards in 2020. Among all kinds of wastes, e-waste is one of the most dangerous types. To dispose them correctly, special recycling technology and equipment are required. Thus, Chinese government is firmly determined to control this problem in a sustainable manner. Against the background, e-Waste World 2013 will be held on 20-21 March in Shanghai.
