Extended producer responsibility (EPR)

What is EPR?

Extended producer responsibility (EPR), is an exercise and a policy method by which the producers take responsibility for the organization of the disposal of products they create Produce once those products are designated as not useful by consumers. Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is a mixture of environmental, economic, and social factors. Extended producer responsibility (EPR) transferences the economic liability of the value of disposal from the government to the manufacturer of the trade.

EPR

POLICIES

 i. As per environmental policy, stated Producer has the responsibility, for reducing environmental impact and managing the product and their waste, are extended to across the whole life cycle of the product

ii. As per Rule 13 (1) (Management) Rules, 2016 Central pollution control board has been mandated to grant, renew, or refuse Extended producers responsibility(EPR) -Authorization to Producers

iii. Central pollution control board has made directly on the implementation of EPR which includes specific direction for Producers and other stakeholders for extended producer responsibility (EPR) Authorization, channelization, collection, storage, transportation, environmentally sound dismantling, recycling, and refurbishment.

Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016

The uniform framework for EPR delineated on background, selected definitions, and provisions of EPR in the PWM Rules which include the responsibility of Producers, Importers, and Brand Owners were stated. Different EPR models are proposed as single EPR models may not be suitable for implementation in a country like India. The Material Flow for Plastic is illustrated, addressing mainly 6 streams through which plastic waste is collected in any ULBs.

Plastic waste management, rules 2016

Type of models

Fee-based

This framework addresses three components: ULBS, plastic assembler /recycler, and rag pickers, IEC activity. during this model, the first responsibility of the collection/ segregation and disposal of plastic waste. plastic assembler/recycler, rag-pickers, and IEC activity should be supported for higher and effective waste management.

PRO-based model and plastic credit model

The objective is to determine a professional to steer on implementation and supply the funding required under the principles on behalf of producers/importers/BO to support plastic recycling and promoting the convenience of doing business for all stakeholders. industry self-managed pro got to combat the responsibility for discharging producer’s national and state legal obligations. producers are going to be at liberty to make a decision option for establishing channels of collecting plastic credits with or without linking with pros.

Plastic credit model

A producer isn’t required to recycle their own packaging but got to make sure that the same amount of packaging waste has been recovered/recycled to satisfy their obligation. producers are mandated to accumulate evidence of recycling or recovery from properly accredited processors*/exporters. producers and processors/ exporters may exchange plastic credits for a financial transaction at a price and other terms as negotiated between them.

Guiding principles for uniform EPR Framework

A single national registry for the registration of all stakeholders, ownership of the portals, and digital exchange should rest with the government to make sure the protection and confidentiality of members’ data.

The program shall promote the inclusion of waste pickers, EPR obligation for MLP shall be above the traditional recyclable plastic, ULBs/Municipal Corporations bear the first responsibility for door to door collection of segregated waste, Manufacturers and PIBOs will procure a digital certificate from the professional

SOP for Registration of PIBOs Under Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016 (as amended)

Recently, CPCB has published SOP for registration of producers, importers & brand-owners (PIBOs) under plastic waste management rules 2016 (as amended), with necessary updates. This sop provides various alternatives for fulfilling EPR obligation by PIBOs also as documents the procedure for obtaining the registration to facilitate the straightforward filling of application and progress reports by the PIBOs also on ensuring effective implementation of the EPR plan.

EPR

Key Highlights:

i. EPR Target to be adequate to the sort & Quantum of plastic introduced by PIBOs in respective State/s. Limitation on the amount of WMAs/PIBO engaged with PWPF by the processing capacity of PWMF as per Registration.

ii. PWPF should be registered with SPCB/PCC under PWM Rule 13(3).

iii. Provision of online application of registration on CPCB portal and Application fee shall be paid by PIBOs.

iv. Nomination of a State/UT level Nodal Agency/Department to administrate the affairs of Urban

v. Local Bodies in the state/UT.

vi. Submission of Half-Yearly Progress Reports by PIBO & Nodal agency to SPCB/PCC.

vii.Third-party audit by CPCB for verification of documents submitted by the PIBOs

Overview of the SOP for Registration of PIBOs

PWM Rules 2016 (as amended)

EPR

 

Standard operating procedure (SOP) for registration of producers, importers & brand owners (PIBOs) under plastic waste management (PWM) rules, 2016

PLASTIC RECYCLING

PMW rules, extended producers responsibility (EPR) for management of plastic waste packaging is entrusted with the Pibos who introduce the products within the market. They’re required to determine a system for the management of plastic waste generated thanks to their products by engaging with local bodies.

The Pibos has three alternatives as per annexure I for implementation of the EPR plan:

I.PWM through own distribution channel

II.PWM through direct engagement with the urban local bodies (ULBs)

III.PWM through engagement with waste management agency (WMA), which in turn should engage with ULBs

Responsibility of SPCB/PCC

Monitor implementation of EPR action plan of PIBOs at state / UT level to make sure its effective implementation.

Compile PIBO wise activities operating within the state/UT as per their EPR action plan and share it within the property right.

Assess the knowledge on EPR activities of PIBOs/ WMA provided by the state nodal agency vis-a-vis their EPR plan and communicate deficiencies, if any, to the PIBO

Validate information provided by state nodal agency and PIBO and submit the same to CPCB

SPCB/CPCB

Role of the (PIBOs)

As per the provisions of the PWM Rules the PIBOs need to compute modalities for waste collection system supported Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR). EPR means the responsibility of a producer (includes Brand-owners/Importers) for the environmentally sound management of the merchandise until the top of its life

Plastic Waste management through Own Distribution channels/ Urban Local Bodies(ULBs)/- Through Agency

i. Waste Collection: Collection through own channels and networks or via a partnership with ULBs /Agencies

ii. Waste Quantity: Waste quantity should be identical to the projected quantity of plastic waste generated.

 

 

iii. Waste Recycling: Collector should have direct contact with the waste recycler to ensure all waste collected is sent for recycling. The PIBOs can send the plastic waste for co-processing in cement mills. Roadmaking or any other waste processing facility, the documentary proof of which has to be submitted to CPCB.

iv. Coverage: The area in which the products are sold to ensure collection of plastic waste preferably in the Pan-India coverage, states/UT covered by their distribution channel. Also, to ensure that cities of all categories are covered preferably one ULB from Tier I, II & III be engaged.

Role of  (PCB) Pollution Control Board /CPCB,SPCB

Every state has its own Pollution control panel (PCB) or Pollution Control Committee (PCC) The function of  PCB/PCC is to increase awareness among the people regarding sustainable development and enhance the quality of the environment with the assistance of all the stakeholders.

The State Pollution control panel works under the Supervision of CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board). The CPCB has provided all its functions and powers to the SPCB.

The SPCB is a corporation established to implement Environmental Laws and rules within the concerned state’s jurisdiction. The State pollution Prevention and control panel is constituted under the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974.

Objectives of state pollution control board

I. It ensures the prevention of natural resources.

II. Sustainable development for the economic growth of the nation along with environmental protection and social equity.

III. Works toward effective waste management for the protection of the environment.

IV. To increase customer awareness among the general public.

Impact of EPR

All EPR includes recommendations addressed to the reviewed country. Recommendations aim to guide further action to beat challenges faced by a rustic. They also aim to market the convergence of environmental policies within the ECE region as an entire.

EPR has resulted in improved policy and legal frameworks and better integration of environmental concerns into sectoral policies, stronger institutions for environmental management, improved financial resources for environmental protection and greening the economy, improved environmental monitoring and knowledge systems, strengthened public participation, and increased international cooperation governments or private companies shall facilitate investment to scale back transportation cost of the collected recyclables, enhance design for recycling, develop an industrial standard for recycled products, also as stimulate green public procurement.

Different types of plastic waste

What is plastic ?

Plastics are a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that use polymers as a main ingredient. Their plasticity makes it possible for plastics to be molded, extruded or pressed into solid objects of various shapes.

Plastic material is cheap, cost-effective to produce, versatile, and durable. We can use plastic safely for packaged food, drinking milk or water, and various healthcare equipment. Plastics are cost-effective, require less energy to produce, and are very lightweight and biocompatible. This makes them an ideal material for single-use disposable devices, which currently comprise 85 % of medical equipment. Plastics can innovative materials for use in engineered tissues, absorbable sutures, prosthetics, and other medical applications.

Why we should Recycle Plastic Waste?

Cuz, Plastic recycling reduces C02 emitted from the manufacture of new plastic, emissions from carbonizing plastic waste, and prevents waste from going to landfills or decomposed lands. Further, recycling is more fuel-efficient, than producing new polymers plastic.

How can you classify which plastic is used?

You can distinguish the plastic by recycling symbols (mention below in the diagram) with the number used, and you can come to know which kind of plastic is used for what and its recyclability.

The different types of plastic waste?

  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE)
  • High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polystyrene (PS)
  • Miscellaneous Plastics (Mix plastics)

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE)

Polyethylene terephthalate which is also defined as PET or PETE is mainly used to manufacture the packaging material for food products such as fruit and drinks, and ravages due to their ability to keep the product from spoiling. It is lightweight, transparent, and also available in some colors. They are safer than the rest of the plastic. They are the most used plastic all around the world as have a high strength to weight ratio. Polyethylene terephthalate is easily recycled. Hence it is code as number 1.

High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE):

HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene, which is a thermoplastic polymer. It is mostly used for Hygiene products like plastic bottles, milk jugs, juice containers, shampoo bottles, body wash products, bleach bottles, cutting boards, and piping and is also used in children’s toys. With its lightweight, durability, and malleability, HDPE is a perfect material for injection molding. It’s easily recycled and is quite strong and thick when compared to PET. It is code as number 2.

High-Density Polyethylene

High-Density Polyethylene

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Polyvinyl Chloride can be defined as PVC it is a “thermoplastic” material. PVC offers a wide variety of applications and advantages across multiple industries in both rigid and flexible forms. In particular, Rigid PVC possesses a high density for plastic, making it extremely hard and generally incredibly strong. PVC has an extremely durable nature and is lightweight, making it an attractive material for construction, plumbing, and other industrial applications. PVC is very dense compared to most plastics, readily available, and cheap. And has excellent tensile strength. Due to being easily recyclable, its code as number 3

Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

LDPE’s lower density and branched molecules provides it somewhat different properties. It is resistant to impact (doesn’t break easily), moisture (waterproof), and chemicals resistance (can stand up to many hazardous materials). It is mostly used as bags for groceries, newspaper delivery, dry-cleaning, bread, beverage cups, plastic wraps, and so on, plus product overwraps, bubble wrap, and cereal box liners. Plus there are many industrial and agricultural uses, particularly plastic film and packaging to protect all sorts of products. They are recycled into film plastic, furniture, plastic lumber, rubbish, and compost bins. Due to its different properties, its code is 4.

 Polypropylene

Polypropylene also known as ( polypropene ), is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applicants . In simple terms plastic is known for being a tough and rigid material. Polypropylene is a plastic that can be used as packaging material, Medical supplies, Plastic furniture, Automotive parts, Plastic films. Polypropylene is one among the foremost common sorts of plastic utilized in the manufacturing process. The code for this 5

Polystyrene

Polystyrene may be a synthetic hydrocarbon polymer made up of the monomer referred to as styrene. It can either be solid or foamed form. You may be very familiar with the word Styrofoam (Thermocol ). Commonly used polystyrene is transparent, hard, and brittle. It is mostly used for Plastic forks, DVD cases, the housing of computers, model cars, toys, rulers, and hair combs, disposable cutlery and bowls, packing materials, egg cartons. Due to various use its code as 6

Polystyrene

Polystyrene

Miscellaneous Plastics

Miscellaneous Plastics are that plastic which is different from above all plastic. It`s are polycarbonate, polylactide, acrylic, acrylonitrile butadiene, styrene, fiberglass, and nylon. plastic CDs and DVDs Baby Bottles Large water bottles with multiple-gall capacity Medical storage containers Eyeglasses Exterior lighting fixtures. It is not very easy to interrupt down these plastics once they’re created unless they’re exposed to high temperatures.

Type of Waste Segregation

Waste can be distinguished into the following categories

Liquid Waste, Solid Waste, & Hazardous waste, Medical/clinical waste, Electrical waste (E-waste), Recyclable waste, Constructions, and demolition debris, Nondegradable and Green waste. This waste has to be disposed of separately, as, at the later stage, there is too much waste collected and take more time to segregate by the rag pickers or waste management or its dumped nearby city landfill.

  • Liquid or solid household waste
    The wastes from residential areas are stated as domestic waste-waters. These wastewaters come from our day-to-day household and include those from food preparation, washing, bathing, and toilet usage. These wastes are mainly household or can also be classified as black bag waste which comes from the house. These wastes are wet and solid type in nature they can consist of Vegetables, glass bottles, leftover food, etc.

Liquid or solid waste

  • Hazardous waste
    Hazardous waste can pose a serious threat to humans and other living beings. Hazardous waste produces from many sources, ranging mostly from industrial manufacturing process and production, wastes from batteries and come in many forms, including liquids, solids gases, and sludges.

Hazardous Waste

  • Medical/Clinical Waste
    Wastes generated from health care facilities such as hospitals, physician’s offices, Dental clinics, blood banks, medical research facilities, veterinary hospitals/clinics, and laboratories. Sharps-inflicted injuries on the bodies. Toxic exposure to pharmaceutical products, antibiotics, and cytotoxic drugs. Chemical infection arising out of disinfection, sterilization, or waste treatment process. Thermal injuries and infection occurring due to open contact with burning and the operation of medical waste incinerators and radiation.

 

Medical Clinical Waste

  • Electrical waste (E-waste)
    Electronic or e-waste describes wastes produce from electrical or electronic devices. Used electronics which are refurbishment, reuse, resale recycling through material or disposal are also e-waste. Processing of e-waste in developing countries can lead to ill-effect on human health and environmental pollution. Electronic scrap products such as CPUs, computer parts, bio-hazards machines, medicals devices, heavy machinery, wires, etc. It contains harmful material as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. And can cause significant risk to the health of workers and their communities.

Electrical waste (E-waste)

  • Recyclable waste
    Recyclable waste is the items mainly used in households such as plastic waste, paper waste, glass waste, metal waste, etc. Waste management companies help in recycling this kind of product. Plastic waste is commonly recycled due to the extensive use of plastic in all types of products. Due to recycling, there is surged in the economic cycle.

Recyclable waste

  • Constructions and demolition debris
    The waste generated from the construction, renovation, repair, or demolition of houses, a large building, roads, bridges, piers, and dams repairs or construction, road repair. Usually, these wastes are bulky and heavy materials which takes time to dispose of the waste.  C&D waste consists of wood, gypsum, steel, concrete, plaster, and metal.

Constructions and demolition debris

  • Green waste
    Green waste, also known as “biological waste”, such as branches, leaves, grass, tree limbs, waste of vegetables, bread, and grains as well as paper waste. Green waste can be classified as organic waste or waste from the forest, food market, or gardens, any biodegradable materials that grow in your garden are classed as green waste. Waste is of three types Liquid or solid waste, Hazardous waste, Medical/clinical waste, Electrical waste (E-waste), Recyclable waste, Constructions, and demolition debris, Nondegradable, and Green waste. This waste has to be disposed of separately, as at the later stage, there is too much waste collected and take more time to segregate by the rag pickers or waste management or its dumped nearby city landfill.

Green Waste

What is extended producer responsibility in plastic waste management ?

Extended Producers Responsibility means the responsibility of a producer (including Brand-owners/Importers) for the environmentally sound management of the product until the end of its life.

Extended producer responsibility, refers to the responsibility for the management of the disposal of products by producers once those products are designated as no longer useful by consumers. Our main objective is to develop an effective and efficient system that takes care of the collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by the MPCB and CPCB as a PRO Agency. These materials are also used in cement kilns, pyrolysis, for road construction and recycling centers, on the basis of their quality and price

Under EPR in accordance with PWM Rules 2016 (amendment 2018)  PIBOM’s (Producers, Importers and Brand Owners, Manufacturers) are given significant responsibility for the recycling or disposal of post-consumer waste.

What is PRO?

The waste generators such as brand owners/producers are required to collect back the end-of-life waste generated through their business. This responsibility is met through waste collection agencies who are recognized as a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) .

Implementation of EPR activity

  1. The very first step starts with Registration at CPCB/SPCB by submission of relevant documents required by CPCB which mainly consist of an action plan, agreement, certificates, licenses, etc.
  2. The next step starts with the role of an authorized waste management agency to collect back the agreed volume of post-consumer plastic waste in a period of 1 year from the desired location and recycle or dispose of it safely as per CPCB/SPCB guidelines.
  3. The waste collection agency will present relevant documents for proof of waste collection activity
  4. On behalf of PIBOM’s agency will submit a quarterly report to CPCB.
  5. After completion of the activity final report will be submitted by the agency to PIBOM’s

How is MLP Currently Managed and the “Unrecyclable” Myth

What is MLP?

MLP stands for Multi-Layered Plastic. It is a type of plastic most commonly used for the packaging of food items such as chips, biscuits, chocolates, and other snacks. Mostly, MLP packets have two sheets of plastic enclosing a layer of aluminum, but technically MLP can be any material that has at least one layer of plastic.

These multiple layers prevent food contamination and help in transport and storage. Hence, this is the best way in which packaged food can reach people, say, food majors. But waste collectors and rag pickers typically don’t collect this waste, as it is an extremely low value (INR 2-4/Kg compared to INR 25-30/Kg for PET, for example) and is therefore doomed to littering our streets, dumps, and sewage canals.

How Much MLP Do We Generate?

(June 2019, ET article) According to a Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry study, it is estimated that the plastic producing industry in India is estimated to grow to 22 million tonnes (MT) a year by 2020 from 13.4 MT in 2015 and nearly half of this is single-use plastic (majorly MLP).

(Dec 2019, HT article) Maharashtra Pollution Control Board data states that, of 23,600 metric tons (MT) of MLP waste accumulated in the state in 2019, 12,500MT has been collected by PROs and sent to cement industries or disposed of through a process called pyrolysis.

The remaining waste has either ended up burnt, at landfills or littering the land and natural water bodies.

How is MLP Currently Managed and the “Unrecyclable” Myth

It is widely believed by the government, manufacturers, brands, and consumers that the large amount of MLP and MLP waste being generated is “non-recyclable” due to its low value.

Due to this “myth”, MLP waste is either:

1) taken to cement kilns for co-processing or 2) mixed with bitumen for road construction, or it is also disposed of using 3) WTE (Waste to Energy) or 4)  Pyrolysis.

However, none of these methods are ideal or sustainable as they are either extremely polluting or cause an economic loss of the material (i.e. MLP).

It is untrue that MLP waste cannot be recycled. There is a fifth and ideal method- Waste to Granules (i.e. Recycling)

Recycling of MLP

The Shakti Plastic Industries has invested in the technology to recycle MLP and has the capacity to convert MLP waste into granules which are fit to be used for making a variety of products ranging from chairs, stools, benches, pallets, flower pots to much more!

In terms of benefit to the manufacturer, producers, and end consumers, recycled MLP pellets are far cheaper than those made from virgin plastic pellets apart from being sustainable, contributing to a circular economy, and ensuring that a large amount of untreated MLP plastic waste does not pollute our shared environment. 

Way Forward for Encouraging MLP Waste Recycling

In order to promote the recycling of MLP on a large scale, the industry needs the following:

  • Strict legislation
  • Appropriate Technology
  • Government support and subsidies
  • Zero custom duty on import of MLP recycling machinery and technology
  • Compulsory economic support through EPR by the brands/ manufacturers/ producers/ importers of products using MLP packaging.
  • Decentralized waste systems to ensure the greatest collection and transportation of MLP waste from areas of waste generation to the recyclers.

Challenges in Recycling MLP Waste

  • Highly power-intensive industry
  • Processes involve large water consumption and requirement of an ETP plant
  • Large investments
  • Unavailability of appropriate technology on a large scale
  • Collection of MLP waste from areas of generation including rural and hard-to-reach areas
  • Quality control and standardization of MLP waste and resulting recycled plastic pellet

Benefits of MLP Recycling

  • Sustainable solution for managing the growing MLP waste
  • Manages a highly polluting type of plastic waste that is widely littered and left uncollected
  • Contributes to a Circular Economy
  • Economically beneficial
  • Resource recovery
  • Employment and Job Creation
  • Incentivization for and upliftment of informal workers through the chain
  • Supports formalization, organization, structuring, and growth for all the stakeholders in the recycling chain in India (waste workers and rag-pickers, aggregators, recyclers, PROs, etc.)

 

Plastic Recycling, Challenges, Stages In Recycling And Its Benefits

Plastic is supposed to be the greatest product of the 20th century, but improper disposal and management of plastic made it a bigger issue. Plastic can not be disposed but it can be recycled again and again and again.

At The Shakti Plastics Industries, we are committed to creating a better future for the world by recycling even the non-recyclable. Whether it’s a mold from a store, pens from a school, or plastic gloves from a manufacturing facility, we collect and recycle almost any form of plastic waste. With end-to-end waste management services that cater to individual collectors, companies, retailers, manufacturers, municipalities, NGOs, and small businesses, we are poised to transform millions of tonnes of plastic waste into new products of great value. Proud Recycler.

What is Plastic Recycling?

  • Plastic Recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products
  • Very few types of plastic waste which can not be recycled sent to cement kilns, Road Construction & Pyrolysis

Challenges in plastic recycling

  • Lack of awareness leads to the mixing of all kind of waste
  • Due to plastic density, it occupies more space and cost double to transport
  • Plastic requires manual segregation before recycling. Lack of infrastructure and government policies
  • Myths and lack of recycled plastic products acceptance in-market leads more plastic waste to landfills

Stages in plastic waste recycling

Recycling of plastic waste is consist of the following stages:

  • Collection: Plastic waste is collected from various collection sources like Rag Pickers, municipalities, Societies, Kabadiwalas, and Awareness Drives.
  • Sorting: Collected plastic waste needs to be sorted accordingly so it can be processed further in shredding machine
  • Washing: Sorted plastic waste usually contains dust, adhesive and more impurities that need to be washed away. This is done in the washing line at the recycling facility.
  • Shredding: Once segregated and washed now plastic is shredded to smaller pieces by the process of shredding.
  • Identification and Classification of Plastic: After shredding, proper testing of the plastic pellets are conducted in order to ascertain their quality and class.
  • Extruding: Running on the line next step is extrusion, In this process, shredded plastic waste is melted and extruded, and converted to plastic granules. Also In order to enhance the properties of the material, even some extra filling are added to the material

Recycling Process

Processes of Recycling & Disposal Of Non-Recyclable

Very few types of plastic waste which can not be recycled sent to cement kilns, Road Construction & Pyrolysis

  • Pyrolisis: Pyrolysis generally consists of heating the material above its decomposition temperature, breaking chemical bonds in its molecules.
  • Cement Kilns: Plastic waste that can not be recycled anymore are sent to cement kilns.

Advantages of Plastic Recycling

Knowing the process of recycling it does not only helps us manage waste but also contributes to a better and safer environment.

  • The huge amount of plastic production: Plastic is used for manufacturing households and goods which are used on a daily basis, there is more plastic in our garbage than any other type of plastic. Recycling puts the same plastic waste in the circular economy.
  • Conservation of Energy and Natural Resources: virgin plastic requires resources like chemicals and production energy recycled plastic granules can full fill the demand for plastic granules for plastic products manufacturing and helps conserve energy and natural resources.
  • Clears Landfill Space:  Plastic waste accumulated makes huge piles of plastic waste on the landfill as the plastic takes ages to decompose fills up landfills which further causes the release of toxic air and pollution leading to diseases.

Plastic recycling not only promotes proper waste management of plastic waste but also helps conserve the environment.
