The annual generation of e-waste is projected to increase to 74.7 million metric tons by 2030 from 44.4 million MT in 2014. The volume and complexity of e-waste generated through the current linear take-make-consume-dispose model seriously threaten the environment and human health, particularly in developing countries with limited capacity to manage it sustainably. Thus, technology-driven urban mining is increasingly gaining attention as a sustainable solution to address this problem. However, most of the urban mining actors in developing countries follow conventional urban mining methods – manual processes. The study explores the factors that influence the technology adoption in urban mining in developing countries.
