Delhi LG moots e-waste management park for state

Plans to implement EPR rules for batteries

Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has directed officials to chalk out a proposal for setting up an e-waste management park in Delhi for efficient disposal of electronic waste. Baijal held a meeting along with K Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Indian government in this regard.

The LG stressed the need to provide for a mechanism to effectively implement the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) pertaining to collection of e-waste and its processing. He also called for a system of incentives and disincentives to encourage safe disposal of e-waste; an oversight mechanism to ensure compliance of e-waste management rules; and for evolving an appropriate framework for management of the e-waste park.

The Delhi Pollution Control Committee is also preparing an elaborative framework for safe disposal of obsolete batteries of electric vehicles, according to officials. It will also include EPR, which makes producers of these batteries partially responsible for their recycling.
