Workshop: E-waste and End-of-life Small Batteries’
Date: 21.02.2019; Venue: India Habitat Centre, New Delhi
E-waste: E-waste Rules were introduced in India in 2012 and since then Toxics Link has tried to assess its implementation by both evaluating the measures taken by Producers to fulfill their responsibilities under EPR as well as examining the impact of regulations on the informal sector who are historically engaged with e-waste processing. The revised e-waste rules were notified in 2016, with amendment in 2018 and it was time to assess its implementation status. In an attempt to understand the impact of these new set of rules on EPR implementation as well as on the informal e-waste processing, Toxics Link brings out the study reports “Time to Reboot III” and “Informal E-Waste Recycling in Delhi: Has the Scenario Changed?”
End-of-life Small Batteries: Another toxic waste that Toxics Link has been looking into is Batteries. Small batteries have a huge market in India, especially single use ones, but these also have an environmental impact if not managed well at the end of life. In the report “DEAD AND BURRIED: A situation analysis of theBattery Waste Management in India” Toxics Link has tried to identify regulatory gaps and subsequently end of Life battery management processes in the country.
A day long workshop is organised by Toxics Link on 21 st February, 2019 at India Habitat Centre to discuss the findings from study reports on e-waste and battery waste and to also deliberate with all stakeholders on measures required to improve the situation on ground regarding toxic waste management.
