Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is the most rapidly growing waste stream in the world, and in developing countries, the majority of the residues are disposed of in the open. Polymers and printed circuit boards (PCB) compose the major portion of WEEE. Motivated by this important problem, this review describes the contributions of the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technique to the chemical inspection of polymers and PCB from WEEE. Several aspects of this technique have been reported, such as the application of chemometric tools, data mining, data treatment and manipulation. We also present an emission-line library for the identification of the polymers in WEEE. Additionally, we highlight the work of many LIBS researchers who have developed, adapted, and improved the WEEE analysis methods. (c) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
