Abstract

Smart mobile devices of the present era offer many services i.e. SMS, gaming, a camera, navigation, the Internet, television, etc., and their utilization has significantly risen during the last decades. Today, individuals are addicted to mobiles and cannot think of living without using them. Conversely, these mobiles become obsolete due to certain shortcomings and are eventually replaced with new ones and thus create e-waste, which are alarmed as threat to the society. In this work, the authors describe mobiles and e-waste in a closed loop structure for supporting green issues. The work has rooted generalized interval-valued trapezoidal fuzzy numbers (GIVTFNs) with a degree of similarity measure approach to model the rationale and to furnish decision results. The authors developed a decision support system to prevent e-waste by defining significant inadequacy liable for the larger alteration of working mobiles. The present study demonstrates the technical model under an Indian context to verify its applicability, but it can be used it under any regional or worldwide scenario.
