Set up recycling plants for treating and recycling collected Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), colloquially known as e-waste, and classified as hazardous waste due to the presence of substances such as mercury, cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Recover materials within WEEE, including scarce metal resources, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and printed circuit boards. Operate as a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) and an integral part of envisaged regulation on the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for WEEE.
Prevent dumping and burning of e-waste, promote recycling of valuable resources, and reduce environmental pollution.
