Eco Recycling Limited - Manufacturer of weee recycling services, reverse logistics services & data destruction services in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
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 The introduction of these new products has resulted in outdated/unutilized electronic equipments also referred to as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipments).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 growing e-waste pile is a concern around the world and statistics show that it runs into millions of tons annually. India generates about 500,000 tons of waste annually, from electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) which is practically being entirely and 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 with properly, thus defeating the primary purpose for which WEEE recycling is undertaken.
The organized sector on the other hand uses WEEE recycling, a latest & environment friendly technology which not only ensures good health of the stakeholders but also recovers most of the materials used while making the product. Any equipment which uses either a plug or battery can be recycled using WEEE recycling. All types of obsolete electrical equipment including lighting, fridges and IT are treated safely by WEEE recycling. WEEE recycling storage containers are also used to keep the waste safe. Since, most of these components are made of commodities which are re-saleable and re-usable, it 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.
At Ecoreco, we have our own fleet of trucks and containers as well as tie-ups with number of leading logistics companies to support our initiative of returning back the basic commodities to the respective industries without further withdrawal from mines. This robust network of reverse logistic will certainly promote formal recycling of e-waste. We hope that the above mechanism will certainly prevent informal and unscientific disposal and its subsequent hazards to human health and the environment.As an ongoing activity, Ecoreco will continue to establish more & more collection points to map the whole nation in a very structured manner. Ecoreco will provide three-tier architecture to OEMs to meet their EPR obligations, last mile collection points, state level dismantling centres and national level recycling centres. Ecoreco endeavours to be the first Indian companies to envisage an integrated reverse logistics network to facilitate effective collection of e-waste from end consumers across the coun
Handing over of Data Devices like HDDs, Media tapes, Flash drives etc. is a major challenge for any organisation while going for disposal of IT equipment. These Data Devices are loaded with lots of confidential information of the company & its clients and personal / secret information of the staff etc. and hence it becomes very important that before handing over such devices, all the data are completely sanitized / destroyed.
Ecoreco’s data destruction services helps clients get rid of this fear factor by availing Ecoreco’s World Class Services of data deletion / degaussing / destruction, as per clients’ needs and data security policies.
At Ecoreco, we have developed India's first mobile shredding facility that enables 100% destruction of confidential data at the client premise (onsite). By shredding the data devices at the client site itself, we relieve clients of their concerns relating to data security and data leakage.
With the increasing consumption of gadgets with latest technologies, discarding rate of electronic equipment is also increasing rapidly but whatever discarded, need not necessarily be an end of life only. There are chances that certain equipment and components still has useful life either without much of refurbishment or by repairing & upgrading and are good for redeployment at different consumer levels. Ecoreco prefers to salvage such equipment and components in the best interest of environment & ecology and remarket these items. It may not be out of place to mention that in spite of India’s dominance in technology sector, penetration level of computerisation is still in a single digit primarily because the cost of acquiring new electronic asset is not within the reach of every consumer. Ecoreco is of the view that refurbishment and remarketing should be promoted as much as possible thereby lower and middle income group can also have an access to electronic equipment and computer literacy ratio to the total population may be enhanced at an affordable costs.
With the kind of plans of Digital India and Smart Cities the present Central Government has, India will certainly need more and more people to adopt the change and bring the change, electronics will certainly play a greater role.
Ecoreco has a team of qualified engineers who takes care of salvaging & refurbishment of such assets. Ecoreco even organises E-waste Week every year in December and request corporates to donate their computers for refurbishment at Ecoreco for use by the underprivileged. Ecoreco has set up a computer lab at National Association for Blinds (NAB) in Mumbai, donated value to Cancer Patients Aid Association in Mumbai, Handicapped Association in Kolkata are a few such examples besides several schools and colleges.
Ecoreco facilitates disposal of fused lamps to protect environment. Although, lamp recycling is not a regulated industry but Ecoreco started this service way back in 2008 to encourage large consumers of lamps to go for recycling in an environment friendly manner. Ecoreco started Lamp Recycling on Wheels facility in 2008 to provide on-site service of lamps recycling and also provides off site lamps recycling service to environment conscious users of lamps.
When lamps are thrown away in the solid waste stream and end up breaking, the mercury becomes airborne and can harm the environment. Airborne mercury often contaminates waterways, where it ends up in fish that live in them. When mercury-contaminated fish is consumed, it can affect humans' nervous system, particularly those of young and unborn children.
The amount of mercury in a single lamp may be small. However India's annual domestic production of fluorescent tube lights (FTL) and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) involves the use of about eight tonnes of mercury, further, imported CFLs account for another three tonnes. Since almost all discarded lamps find their way into the municipal garbage from the commercial and domestic sector, the need for lamp recycling is huge. Recognizing the urgent need and opportunity, Ecoreco has developed India's first mobile lamp recycling facility that enables responsible recycling and disposal of lamps at the client premise (onsite). Through this innovation, Ecoreco is preventing mercury from releasing into the environment by keeping these products out of landfills and incinerators. Further, our process of recycling lamps captures the mercury, allowing it to be refined & reused.
Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) or may be conveyed as Environment Protection Responsibility (EPR) broadens the responsibility of manufacturers beyond the factory gates to the end-of-life management of their products when discarded by the end user.
Extended Producers’ Responsibility concept was first time formally introduced in the European Union at the time of implementing WEEE Directive (i.e. Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Directive) in July, 2006 to regulate movement of end of life EEE. Under the concept, producers / importers are responsible to take back their products from the consumer either at the end of life of the respective products or as and when the user wants to discard for disposal.To discharge obligation of take back and to meet expenses relating to logistic, recycling & disposal of hazardous substances the directive also provided for Advance Recycling Fee (ARF), which producers are eligible to collect from the customers at the time of sale. The ARF so collected remain earmarked to meet above obligations on the part of the producers / importers and after collection either on their own or taking help of third party logistic, the end of life equipment are sent to the certified recyclers for environment friendly disposal as per the norms set under the above directive
