e-Waste Management

e-Waste Management

This vertical is engaged in execution and implementation projects on different domains of pollution control. The activities are conducted in close association with State Pollution Control Board.

Electronic waste or e-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. Informal processing of e-waste in developing countries can lead to adverse human health hazards and environmental pollution. E-waste is considered the "fastest-growing waste stream in the world" with Eiffel towers. In 2021, an estimated 57.4 million tonnes of e-waste were reported - equivalent to 5700 Eiffel towers, thus the name 'tsunami of e-waste' given by the UN. Alarmingly, only less than 15% of e-waste is recycled globally in proper way! and in case of India, it is even less than 10%.

Webel has been nominated as State Implementing Agency (SIA) and State Level Nodal Agency (SLNA) of e-Waste Management for controlling e-Waste within the State of West Bengal. WBEIDC Ltd is responsible for the collection, segregation, dismantling and recycling of e-Waste generated from different ULBS, Corporations, Development Authorities, District, Sub Divisions, Blocks, Gram Panchayats, etc. across the State of West Bengal including private organizations. To facilitate ease of collection customized e-Waste Bins are developed and deployed at Webel IT parks in the State. Setting up of an e-Waste collection, dismantling and recycling plant is also in process. District level sensitization programs are being conducted by this vertical and other domain experts.
