The Engineering Solutions for Ghana E-Waste Problems MQP provides a grinder to pulverize electronic waste in Agbogbloshie, a scrap yard in Ghana. Ghanaian expertise guided the project’s focus on manufacturing and sustainable maintenance. SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS simulation tools were used to visualize and test the design. A steel prototype was assembled using the tools in Washburn Shops at WPI. Future revisions of the E-waste Recycling Grinder could scale a manufacturing plan and determine a grinder integration plan for Agbogbloshie.
