Stakeholders

Outcomes

Rapid growth of the electronic industry and high rate of obsolescence of the electronic products lead to the generation of huge quantities of electronic waste (e-waste).  The recycling of e-waste in non-formal units by unscientific, unhealthy and non-environmental friendly methods is the key challenge in our society.

 

The channelization of the e-waste for proper recycling and establishing a system of accountability in e-waste management would only happen if effective awareness could be established among the consumers, manufactures, recyclers, young generations in school, colleges, government & corporate sectors.

The programme aims to create effective awareness in various levels (of society) to reduce the adverse impact on environment and health arising out of the polluting technologies used in recycling e-waste in the unorganized sector.

Expected Outcomes from the Project

 

The said project is under Digital India campaign, and it will impact the overall growth of the country as it Conserves natural resources.

 

Recycling recovers valuable materials from old electronics that can be used to make new products. As a result, we save energy, reduce pollution, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.

 

E-Cycling will create jobs for professional recyclers and refurbishers and creates new markets for the valuable components that are dismantled.

 

The project will also take care of the responsibilities of the producers that they must inculcate the Principle of EPR and follow the mechanism for channelization of e-waste to registered dismantler or recyclers.

 

The programme will make sure that the responsibilities of other stakeholders are also met for effective implementation of the e-waste management rules, 2016.

 

The programme will also work upon the awareness on Reduction in the use of hazardous materials in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment and their components.
