In recent decades, the quantity of WEEE has significantly improved as the production of EEE is increasing worldwide, thus expanding the research studies regarding their recycling. Plastics, especially polystyrenic polymers, can be found in different components of EEE like the enclosure, keyboard, mouse, internal parts of the central units, etc. The identification of WEEE plastics is representing an important step achieved after dismantling and separation of waste in order to improve the mechanical properties of the reprocessed recycled materials. There are several methods available for the identification of plastics, most often through spectroscopic fingerprinting Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), thermal study (DSC, TGA), solubility, density, mechanical analysis, and sample techniques (identification code and burning test).
