Recycling Process

There cannot be a material in god’s creation that can be classified as ‘Waste’. Every object has a certain use in appropriate place. Therefore, placing it in the right place solves the issue.
This is the inspiration that we follow. We see to that there is minimal processing in waste management so that there is no environmental pollution. Our strength lies in identifying who needs the components most and what best in the use for various parts of e-Waste.
For example, a cooler fan in CPU may be used as such by the computer service centre. If the same fan is broken it is sold for a lesser value as metal and plastic. Also, every screw or bolt if segregated properly can be reused at appropriate place.
Following are the steps involved in e-Waste handling
  • Sorting
  • Identify Usefulness
  • Identify Hazardousness
  • Dismantling
  • Segregation
  • Treatment / Disposal
For treatment, we follow national guidelines and best international practices. Process description is given in the following flow charts.

The 3 PCBs in Technology
Printed Circuit Boards
Printed Circuit Boards are of utmost importance and offer major challenges in handling hazardous e-Waste. They contain hazardous constitutes such as brominated fire retardants, lead in the solder, mercury, copper and precious metal such as gold. There are currently only couple of facilities available in India to properly treat and extract valuable metals from the PCBs. They are sent abroad for disposal. However, there are several recyclers in the un-organized sector who recover useful metals from PCBs.
Poly Chlorinated Biphenyls
There is an increasing trend of not using PCBs in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment. This is due to Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) policy that many countries are adopting now. Currently we are not processing components containing PCBs at our facilities.
Pollution Control Boards
All Our Technologies are approved by Pollution Control Board of respective states. Currently in India, Pollution Control Boards are the enforcing agencies for the control of e-Waste management.
