Recyclekaro has recently announced its registration on the government's Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) portal for e-waste recycling.

The e-waste and lithium-ion battery recycling company joins Lohum Cleantech, Attero, and LICO Materials as one of the four registered lithium-ion battery recyclers, reinforcing its commitment to sustainable e-waste management.

Based on its existing recycling capacity, Recyclekaro will help lithium-ion battery and electronics product manufacturers, producers, and importers in India meet their EPR targets. These targets include 4,200 MT for lithium-ion battery recycling and 15,000 MT for e-waste recycling, ensuring comprehensive support for sustainability goals.

India is the third-largest e-waste producer globally, generating 1.71 million metric tons annually, with only approximately 40 percent of e-waste recycled in the last financial year. To address this challenge, the EPR portal, an initiative by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), provides a transparent and accountable framework for electronic waste management in India.

It centralises the tracking of e-waste from production to disposal, connecting manufacturers with registered recyclers like Recyclekaro and streamlining collection and recycling processes. The system offers financial incentives through EPR credits, making recycling economically viable and supporting companies in meeting sustainability targets.

Additionally, the platform ensures regulatory compliance, improves data collection and reporting, and encourages innovation in recycling technologies, fostering a more sustainable approach to e-waste management in India.

The Battery Waste Management (BWM) Rules, 2022, notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, apply to all types of batteries. These rules mandate that producers (manufacturers, importers) meet collection and recycling targets to fulfill Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) obligations. Producers, recyclers, and refurbishers must register through the online portal developed by the CPCB, which enhances accountability, traceability, and transparency in meeting EPR obligations.

Rajesh Gupta, Founder and Director of Recyclekaro, commented, "Registering on the government's EPR portal not only allows us to connect directly with manufacturers, fulfilling their waste management responsibilities but also significantly enhances our business opportunities. This registration strengthens our position in the industry and supports our mission to promote sustainable and responsible recycling practices."

Recyclekaro has established a strong presence in the Indian recycling industry, achieving 90 percent metal extraction efficiency with purity levels exceeding 99 percent from scrap batteries, the company claims in a press release. The company plans to double its recycling capacity by the second quarter of FY 2024-25.
