Abstract

The southern region of Puerto Rico lacks proper electronic waste (e-waste) disposal practices. Desarrollo Integral del Sur (DISUR) wants to utilize brownfield zones in the municipalities of Penuelas and Guayanilla for an e-waste recycling center. Our project goal was to research the viability of establishing such a facility on one of the existing brownfield sites. Through case studies, interviews, and surveys we determined the technical, financial and educational factors needed to establish a successful e-waste facility in southern Puerto Rico.
