Launching a New E-waste Trade Mag with Electronic Waste Journal’s Ismail Oyekan

February 24, 2012

Ismail Oyekan returns to “Green is Good” having launched a new e-waste trade publication, Electronic Waste Journal. Oyekan started the publication, which debuted this spring, as part of his quest to further his e-waste knowledge. He previously spoke on the show in 2010 about the International Electronics Recycling Conference and Expo, which he founded in 2009. Oyekan stresses that the EWJ readership is not simply electronics manufactures, but also e-waste recyclers, electronics resellers, policymakers and informed consumers. “There are always new developments [in the e-waste industry], so content has not been a problem,” Oyekan says of the EWJ. “We really want to be a collaborative voice and effort of the industry, so we’re asking people who have a perspective, an idea or a product that they want to showcase to utilize the journal as a platform.”
