Resource and waste implications of an evolving electronic waste stream

Callie Babbitt

Rochester Institute of Technology

Dr. Callie Babbitt is an Associate Professor in the Golisano Institute for Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology, where she conducts research to proactively quantify and minimize environmental impacts of emerging technologies. Callie’s research group creates new methods and models in the field of industrial ecology that are inspired by the study of ecological systems in nature. They apply these models to study sustainability challenges and solutions for food waste management, consumer electronics, lithium-ion batteries, electric vehicles, and nanomaterials.  


Electronic waste is a well-studied but still intractable issue: much is known about environmental impacts of e-waste disposal and design, economic, and policy complications of expanding e-waste recycling. However, sustainable... [ view full abstract ]
