In the leap of electronic vehicle era, an enormous amount of electronic trash is produced due to the growing usage of electrical and electronic devices (e-waste), which is one of the ever-increasing urgent issues, especially in developing nations. Many e-wastes are buried, burned outdoors, or discharged into surface water bodies in these nations since there is no infrastructure to handle them properly. Many developing countries currently use inefficient and highly polluting recycling techniques. Several harmful compounds of e-wastes are detrimental to the environment and endanger human health if disposal processes are not carefully handled. Design for environment cleaner production, extended producer responsibility, standards and labelling, product stewardship, recycling, and remanufacturing are some strategies many nations take to cope with the e-waste stream. This chapter discusses an overview of traditional (landfills and dumps, recycling, thermo-chemical treatment, pyrometallurgical treatment, bio-sorption, bioleaching, bioremediation methods, phytoremediation) and modern techniques (life cycle assessment (LCA), material flow analysis (MFA), and multi-criteria analysis (MCA)) in e-waste management that contribute to the eco-friendly, sustainable management of e-waste. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2023, corrected publication 2023.
