Description:
It is impossible to detail all the types of waste directly or indirectly involved in manufacturing mobile phones. In developed countries production processes manage to keep sensitive materials in a closed circuit, without any waste escaping to the outside world. Production – “Made in Elsewhere” – does not usually take place where the phones are most widespread. Degrees of efficiency in health and environmental protection vary. In some assembly facilities, workers can be exposed to a mixture of toxic chemicals, with waste finding its way into the atmosphere, ground and water supply, posing a serious risk to their health and that of the people living in the neighborhood.
