Overview on E-waste License for Dismantling

E--waste stands for electronic waste; E-waste is one of the growing streams throughout the world responsible for Pollution through electronic gadgets. During the recycling and dismantling of the E-waste, some precious metals are extracted, which contributed the significant economic benefit. Although, some types of hazardous chemicals present in the materials those considered to be life-threatening. The recycling of e-waste must have been done before the disposal of e-waste. In India, e-waste falls under schedule 3 of the "Hazardous waste management and handling rules, 2003. As per schedule 3, E-waste is defined as "waste electrical and electronic equipment including all components, sub-assemblies and their fractions except batteries falling under the rules."

E-waste management in India

The Information technological industry of India was consistently growing during the 1990s. Therefore, the industry has contributed the E-waste in India for a long time. E-waste includes old and discarded computers, mobile phones, motherboards, old charges, C.D.s, DVDs, headphones, televisions, air conditioners, etc. The recycling and dismantling of e-waste activities are not adequately followed in India. The workers who work in e-waste plants are primarily illiterate and unaware of the potential hazard of e-waste. India has been listed as a dumping ground of e-waste in developed countries since they sold loads of electrical and electronic e-waste in Indian markets.

Who can register under an E-waste license? 

 The manufacturer, producers, Consumers, bulk consumers, collection centers, dealers, e-retailers, refurbishers and dismantlers can apply for the E-waste license and recyclers who are engaged in manufacturing, sale, transfer, purchase, collection, storage, and processing of electrical waste and electrical equipment mentioned under schedule. 

E-waste Dismantling

E-waste dismantling is the process of crushing, destroying, burn and melting electronic discarded materials. During the procedure, a minimal amount of plastic was recovered. The dismantling process pollutes the environment. The E-waste dismantling process reduces the burden on the environment, prevents toxicity, and generates value. The dismantling process includes dismantling electronic equipment like computers, laptops, LCDs, and L.E.D. Screens, Televisions, printers, appliances, and more. Dismantling is considered an essential step, which involves segregating the components into pieces that can be reused. 

  • Manual component dismantling separates the useable from the unusable. The recyclable fractions that include viable components are gathered.
  • Hazardous and high-value components, such as P.C.B.s, are removed, and the remaining components are sent to be separated mechanically.
  • Appliances are dismantled to the point where manual separation is no longer practicable and then shipped to be processed.
  • Mechanical shredding is required for further separation into pure materials.

Space required for the Dismantlers 

Dismantlers require space for keeping electrical and electronic equipment for up to 180 days, space for the dismantling and volume reduction process, space required for keeping dismantled & segregated material, and free space for the movement office/administration. For a dismantling capacity of 1T/day, minimum of 300 square meters is expected to be needed for raw material storage, segregated material storage, dismantle activities, & office/administration & other utilities.

Dismantling Process 

 A dismantling operation is essentially a manual operation for segregating the components and returning them to the respected users/recyclers. Elements that can be directly usable shall be transferred to the authorized refurbisher. Though, other parts can be sent to recyclers with a valid C.T.O. or are identified as authorized E-waste recyclers depending on the nature of the part. For example- aluminum and steel parts that have no hazardous material could be transfer to the recyclers and those have hazardous elements shall be forwarded to authorized e-waste recyclers.

Functioning of Dismantlers:

  1.  De-dusting 
  2.  Manual dismantling process
  • Succeeding the manually opening of the electrical and electronic equipment into the component, the dismantling process shall include physical separation and segregation. The dismantler may use screwdriver, wrenches, pliers, wire cutters, tongs, and hammers.
  • Disassembled components should be delivered to authorized e-waste recyclers or recyclers with valid permission to operate (C.T.O.).
  • Manual dismantling shall be done on a dismantling table with plenty of room.
  • The De-dusting system to maintain the factory's desired work zone air quality act has been changed over time. Suction hoods shall be utilized in the de-dusting system on a dismantling table with a cyclone, bag filter, ac & chimney for venting a height of three meters above the roof level.
  • For putting the dismantled items together, collection boxes must be positioned near the disassembly table.
  • Workers have to wear proper personal protective equipment during dismantling, such as goggles, masks, gloves, helmets, and gumboots are required.
  • The following dismantled items and components should be removed from end-of-life products and stored safely for transportation to recyclers:
  • Dismantlers must have suitable capabilities for dealing with leaks of compressor oils, coolant/refrigerant gases like C.F.C.s/HCFCs, and mercury from end-of-life fluorescent & other mercury-containing lamps, among other things. Broken fluorescent lights & oil spills should be contained first to prevent the substance from spreading to adjacent places. Dry sand, unique booms / absorbent pads, stabilizing chemicals, and other methods may be used for later transfer to hazardous waste TSDFs.

The following conditions need to be met before the dismantling process begins:

  • Water-resistant roofing and impervious surfaces
  • Disassembled spare part storage area.
  • Separate storage containers for batteries, capacitors containing P.C.B.s (Polychlorinated biphenyls), and P.C.T.s (Polychlorinated chlorinated triphenyl) (Polychlorinated terphenyls. 

Why is E-Waste Recycling Plant setup required?

The whole world is observing the draconian impact of e-waste pollution, which rapidly causes the degradation of the environment. The Pollution due to E-waste not only causes harm on land but in water bodies also. Many aquatic animals die because of the consumption of E-waste and plastic waste. Therefore, recycling, dismantling and collecting E-waste play a significant role that benefits the environment.

Licenses required for setting up E-waste Plant

  • NOC From SPCB
  • Company Incorporation
  • G.S.T. Registration 

Documents Required for E-waste Authorization

  • Aadhar card of the authorized person
  • P.A.N. copy of the authorized person
  • Factory license/trade license
  • Electricity bill of the Unit Location
  • Layout/plan
  • M.O.A. (if the applicant is a Company)
  • A.O.A. (if the applicant is a Company)
  • Board resolution for appointing an authorized person

Frequently Asked Questions

Dismantling is a key step in e-waste processing. It entails dismantling end-of-life equipment into its constituent parts and sorting them for recycling.

The earliest procedures include manual disassembling. Plastic, iron, monitors, lightweight metals, batteries, LCDs, and other items are separated scientifically during deconstruction and delivered to authorized recyclers approved by the KSPCB and CPCB.

E-waste dismantling operations involve a combination of manual and automated processes to reuse and recycle electronic trash, resulting in zero environmental effect and maximum value from the e-waste disposal process.

Shredding the e-waste stream starts makes it easier to sort and separate plastics from metals and internal electronics. To prepare for further classification, e-waste is shredded into b as small as 100mm. Iron & steel are separated from the waste stream on the conveyor by a powerful overhead magnet.

Ensure that your electrical devices are only handled by Authorized Recyclers/Dismantlers. Call our toll-free numbers to dispose of products that have reached the end of their useful life. Drop off any used electronic items, batteries, or accessories at an Authorized E-Waste Collection Point.

Any individual component is not damaged or destroyed; dismantling is done with the same care as an assembly. The procedures of construction and disassembling are explained in this manner.

The term "disassemble" refers to the process of breaking down a gadget into its component elements. A gadget can be disassembled to check a problem, replace a part, reuse the pieces in another device, or sell the details separately.
