Recyclability Potentials of Beryllium Oxide from E-waste Items in Nigeria
Onyenekenwa Cyprian Eneh

E-waste has become a serious issue to engage African scholarship because the region has become a dumping ground for e-waste, which often contains toxic and hazardous chemical and other components, thereby posing environmental sustainability challenges. Chemistry could play a key role in the management and control of this waste now growing exponentially. This study investigated the recyclability potentials of beryllium oxide-a hazardous chemical compound found in significant quantity in e-waste items. The possibility of recovering the compound from some e-waste items and converting it to beryllium chloride for use as catalyst in laboratories and industry were studied.
