E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in India- with a growth rate of 10% per annum- the generation of e-waste is increasing exponentially every year. This can be attributed to globalization of the economy making electronic products an integral part of our lives. Also, India’s low manufacturing costs, skilled labour, raw materials, availability of engineering skills and opportunity to meet demand in the populous Indian market have contributed significantly to facilitate the growth of the electronics industry. Thus, E-waste management has become an immediate and long term concern as its unregulated accumulation and recycling can lead to major environmental problems endangering human health.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) recognizes this need and has designed hands-on three day training programme on E-waste Management from November 25-27, 2015 at CSE, New Delhi. The programme will cover issues and challenges, policies, regulations, effective strategies and best practices in collection, dismantling and recycling of end of life of E-waste. The programme will also focus on the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and how can it be implemented effectively.
The objective of the programme is to build a cadre of professionals for efficient E-waste management. The programme will consist of lectures, class exercises, group work, Q&A sessions and field visits.
