    Abstract The key statistical findings of the region are that the total amount of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on the market (POM) has fluctuated between 2010 and 2019. The total EEE POM was 1.7 Mt (8.9 kg/inh) in 2010, increased to a height of 1.9 Mt in 2017, and decreased to 1.7 Mt (8.1 kg/inh) in 2019. Only Argentina, Costa Rica, and Chile have internal domestic production of EEE; all 10 other countries rely entirely on imports. Over the same period, e-waste generation in the region increased by 49 percent, from 0.9 Mt (4.7 kg/inh) in 2010 to 1.3 Mt (6.7 kg/inh) in 2019.
