According to Thomas Schauer, on one hand,  the Informational Technology can improve economy, however, on the other hand, IT brings problems which are the risks to  develop sustainable society. Just as Richard Maxwell and Tobby Miller indicate that media technology has the ethic and environmental problems which should be taken into more consideration.

My essay will take Ningbo for an example to explain how the wastes are recycled, especially the E-waste, and what is the problem during recycling. Why it is important to recycle E-waste? How is it affecting our environment? What are the treatment processes of E-waste? Are they managed in a safe way? Is there any import of hazardous E-waste in Ningbo?

    This is a really fascinating topic, Meng Xing, and you’ve clearly done a lot of research on it. Your framing questions are great, and will help structure your essay, and no doubt your research. It could be interesting to consider the priority the economy/industry and government place on e-waste over other forms of waste. best, Ned
