Abstract

we have become too dependent on technology owing to which the quantity of e-waste produced at the end of their life cycle has increased at a rapid pace. In later centuries, there would be an equivalent amount of carbon footprint by the smartphone sector as to that of transportation industry. The approximate estimation of the total carbon footprint while taking the other existing abundant electronic gadgets is enormous. Considering the growing volume of e-waste, the possibilities of these non-biodegradable elements contaminating the atmosphere are towering. The e-waste generated in all these recent years is being taken seriously by various nations and effective steps are being taken to overcome this challenge. To overcome this challenge, an effective e-waste management technique by means of blockchain in the 5G scenario is proposed. The proposed solution tracks the e-waste produced and motivates people by providing incentives to them for channelizing the e-waste via agencies managed by the government that effectively dispose the waste in an environmentfriendly way. Henceforth, a partnership model is proposed for the implementation of this method which leads to increase in jobs as well as proper organization of unplanned setup that is with a large amount of prospective potential.
