E-Waste Management

Introduction

This initiative is the step towards a cleaner and greener earth. This move is one of the ways to show that we are concerned and thus we request all our customers to join this movement to make it successful by way of contributing their unusable / non repairable product (fit for discarding) for recycling.

E-waste has been defined as “waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded”. Whereas Electrical and electronic equipment has been defined as “equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro-magnetic fields to be functional”. Whereas *end of life product means when a product is non-operational or non-repairable.

Europa Technosoft Pvt. Ltd. E-waste is any User Terminals and Systems, Tablets or accessory which is not useable and it is at it’s end of life.

E-waste at Europa Technosoft Pvt. Ltd. is plastic, silicon & aluminium, copper, gold, glass which can adversely effect the atmosphere and hence managing its disposal at the end of its life-cycle in a proper way is important. Apart from affecting the environment it can also affect the health of the people.

Recycling of old IT products is beneficial in following ways:

1. Recycling end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste. Encouraging recycling of all useful and valuable material from e-waste so as to conserve the ever depleting natural resources.

Guidance on the Disposal of End-of-Life Products:

Recycling of Products: Few customers may assume that product at end-of-life stage has no value. But they still contain many reusable or recyclable materials. Recyclable Parts of old product*.

2. Valuable metals are used as component materials for the PCB circuit board. During the smelting process, valuable metals such as gold, silver, and copper can be retrieved from these electronic parts. The metals that are retrieved can be used for new electronic parts or can be sold separately on their own.

3. Plastic materials are used for structural components for internal or external cover. The plastic materials that have been collected are recycled as energy resources after going through a heat recovery process. Recycled plastic may be used to produce items such as traffic cones, plastic fencing, and car bumpers.
