Guiyu e-waste

    Newer Older

    Guiyu is one of the biggest e-waste centers of the world. More than a million ton of e-waste is dismantled in this Chinese village every year. Women, children and man work under terrible conditions to extract all the precious metals from circuit boards, computers, ic's and other electronics.

    They often burn the plastics, circuit boards and ic's in open air without protection in order to extract the melted copper or tin. Despite the ratification of the Basel-agreement, a lot of international branded gadgets end up illegally in Guiyu.

    This man assembles plastic waste form waste-dumps to try to resell it.

      ERAI , ERAIESCROW can have their offices here in Guiyu. May be then sales of counterfeits from these towns can be regulated and improved. Right now ERAI is only helping Gungzhou and Shenzhen traders to export goods from China to USA and rest of world.
      Obsolete parts from China ( removed from trash) are in big demand for US military, pentagon and NASA. Without which billions of dollars worth Aircraft and other equipments would be scrapped.
      75 % of substandard produce of china ( components) pass through American independent brokers, for America and further selling with American tags and labels.

      More Chinese suppliers from here require help of Kristal and Mark Snider in selling their products to America efficiently with the help of their platform like erai, eraiescrow, parthunter, iaed etc.
      We need people at ERAI folks to manage billion dollar counterfeit component industry between America and China. Better escrow service and inspections are required for the known counterfeits to be put to use for American military.
