AbstractTo address the issue of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) or e-waste in Tanzania the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) aims at the implementation of a manual e-waste treatment facility in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. As a first step this report presents a financial feasibility study as a basis for the subsequent development of a detailed business plan for a manual e-waste treatment facility. The feasibility study is based on model calculation with the purpose to roughly estimate all relevant financial flows which occur during the operation of local recycling and refurbishment businesses, and to identify key processes and parameters reacting sensitive on changing conditions.
