Speaker: Toby O'Hara has had a rich and diverse career in Information Technology and systems analysis. He started his career deploying modernisations to the US Navy, working on Mine Hunters and Littoral Combat Ships. Since moving to Australia, he has deployed hardware and software systems in government, education, and not for profit organisations. It became apparent that technology was being replaced at a staggering rate, with very little efforts to recycle. Four years ago, he set himself on a path of career change, earning a post graduate certificate from Griffith University in Waste Management, and is currently researching Material Science at UNSW.

The presentation will address:

  • What is e waste - what a tonne of mobile phones yields
  • Mining
  • Toxic elements
  • Economic and political impacts
  • Disposal of e waste – including the social impacts on poorer countries
  • What can we do?
