Understanding the Knowledge Gap: Solar PV Waste Management
The Government of Bangladesh is promoting solar electricity generating technology, and installing various Nano-grid, micro-grid systems countrywide. Many components, used in solar technology are reaching their end-life, and contributing to an accumulation of e-waste. The majority of the e-waste generated in Bangladesh gets recycled through unregulated informal channels in a casual manner by unskilled workers. Research we have reviewed shows that there are significant adverse impacts on health, safety, and environmental issues. Therefore, coming up with laws and policies relating to the management of solar technology related e-waste has become a priority task. Practical Action and LCEDN have studied this issue and the research available and are pleased to make some recommendations.
