Abstract Scope Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of fastest growing waste streams in Australia. The high potential value of precious metals in e-waste is a factor in the development of an e-waste recycling process facility in Australia. However, current research is more focused from the economic perspective. The environmental impact by using net carbon footprint as an indicator for developing comprehensive waste PCB processing facilities in the Australian context has been investigated. The paper analyses the current situation of e-waste management based on three different scenarios: (1) waste PCB in a small-scale facility (2) recycling of waste PCB integrated with industry (3) recycling of waste PCB in a centralised and large waste PCB recycling facility. The effect of transportation on carbon footprint of the proposed processes in the Australian context was studied. The results show scenarios with low carbon emission for recovering metals while minimising the environmental impact.
