Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras is developing an innovative model to tackle electronic waste (e-waste) by linking stakeholders in the formal and informal economy. Called e-Source, it will be an exchange platform that will serve as an online marketplace for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and facilitate a formal supply chain between various stakeholders (buyers and sellers).
