The Water Research Institute of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is calling for a ban on what it calls “primitive recycling of e-wastes” due to the hazardous chemicals it produces.

During an in-house review seminar by the institute on Wednesday, one of its Researchers, Dr Kwadwo Ansong Asante, revealed that carcinogenic compounds are released into the atmosphere during the burning of e-waste to retrieve copper and other materials.

"Once these chemicals are released into the atmosphere it settles on food stuff and some people also inhale this chemical compounds which are carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting, which means they can interfere with our hormones and our respiratory organs," he said.
