Electronics Recycler Launches E-Waste Tracking Software

The value of the total global e-waste recycling and reuse services market rested at $6.8 billion in 2010, up from $6.2 billion in 2009 and up nearly 43.2 percent, or $2.05 billion, from 2006, according to SBI Energy. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the four-year period is estimated at close to 9.4 percent, while the most growth was seen from 2009 to 2010, when the market grew by almost 9.7 percent. This significant growth is due to a number of factors, including an increase in e-waste volume, expanded e- waste awareness and growing e-waste R&R market stability.
