End-to-end WEEE Recycling without adverse impact on environment
 

India generates more than 3 million MT of e-waste annually and has potential to reach to 20 million MT by 2020. We at Ecoreco really understand our growing responsibilities with the growing volumes. We are committed to provide dynamic modules to handle increasing volume of urban mines of natural resources out of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

 

Ecoreco's WEEE Recycling facility encompasses end-to-end processing of e-waste. As the first facility registered by the Central Pollution Control Board and authorised by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, our safe & secured WEEE Recycling process ensures complete protection of environment with maximum recovery out of end-of-life electronic equipment.

 

Our state-of-the-art de-manufacturing line combines high-tech automation and manual processing methods to sort, dismantle and shred e-waste. A member of the ISRI and Electronic Recyclers Association (ERA), Ecoreco deploys WEEE Recycling processes that are ISO 9001, 14001 & OHSAS 18001 certified.

 

Leveraging our indigenously developed technology for precious metal recovery, we extract valuable materials such as copper, aluminium, silver, gold from complicated electronic scrap. Ecoreco is in fact the only company to have received DSIR, Government of India, support for technology commercialization.

 

The electronic goods industry has seen a massive demand spurt due to new products which are being introduced. The introduction of these new products has resulted in outdated/unutilized electronic equipments also referred to as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipments). These WEEE have hazardous material such as mercury, lead etc and if not properly disposed can cause immense damage to the environment. The imminent threat which the electrical & electronic equipments can cause to the environment if not handled properly has now been widely understood and steps have been initiated for scientific WEEE recycling.

 

The e-waste pile is growing around the world and statistics show that it runs into millions of tons annually. India generates about 500,000 tons annually of waste from electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) and this is practically entirely and being openly dismantled by the unorganized sector with the help of hand held tools like hammer, screw drivers, cutters, burners over and above acid, whereby the hazardous material is not dealt properly, thus defeating the primary purpose for which WEEE recycling is undertaken.

 

The organized sector on the other hand uses the latest & environment friendly technology which not only ensures health of the stakeholders but also recovers most of the ingredients which were used while making the product. Since, most of these components are made of commodities which are re-saleable and re-usable and hence makes WEEE recycling industry economically viable with the supplies of the required quantity of WEEE. While modern technologies carry on nearly hazard-free WEEE recycling of e-waste, precaution must be taken to control harmful emissions and toxics from causing detrimental impacts on health and the environment.

 

In many a developed nations laws have been enacted by the respective authorities and made the recycling of WEEE mandatory. As an extended measure, producers have been made responsible to collect back the equipment at the end of the life of the respective equipment from the user/customer and send the same to the authorized recycler of e-waste. These electrical & electronic items are recycled in such a manner whereby the hazardous materials are dealt with in an environment friendly manner.

 

As per the Basel Convention signed and ratified by most of the Countries, cross boundary movement of WEEE is not permitted and thus ensures availability of raw materials for the domestic recyclers. Recently the Ministry of Environment & Forests has issued guidelines for WEEE recycling in an organized manner. With the growing awareness of WEEE in the domestic market and the high availability of it, the organized sector in the recycling industry is poised for a rapid growth.

 

5-Step Process

Sourcing & Collection

1

  • Procuring e-waste from different sources such as businesses, households etc.

Sorting & Grading

2

  • Weighing and segregation of various e-waste for easy retrieval
  • Ascertaining repair, refurbishment and remarketing
  • Salvaging reusable components

Dismantling

3

  • Dismantling end-of-life equipment into various fractions like plastic, glass, metals, cables, PCBs etc. and segregating them for the convenience of WEEE Recycling.

Shredding

4

  • Shredding into smaller pieces
  • Separating metals from plastic
  • Recovery of metals such as aluminium, copper, precious metals.

Disposal

5

  • Disposing of the hazardous elements for final disposal with the help of CHWTSDF.
