dc.description This study analyzes the impact of obsolete telecommunication devices in particular, cellular phones on both industry and in economy. A background study will be conducted to depict the growing significance of the accumulating waste and potential material resources. Following this, the product structure of various cellular phones will be compared for their bill-of-materials and materials. The study will then propose an efficient end-of-life solution methodology that would provide economic and environmental gain. Related literature review and the gaps in the end-of-life processing solutions will also be included in the study. Solution for design-for-environment including other lessons learned from the research will be provided as a guideline for further progress. This study provides crucial information about calculating in-stock metals, aids in recycling decisions, aids in prioritizing disassembly, bill -of-materials of a cell phone for disassembly sequence, legislation in the Unites Estates, and how changing design will affect the industry. en_US
