E-Waste Management and Sustainability through R3

  1. 1. Submitted By: 1. Devanshi Piprottar (131011) 2. Hetvi Patel (131015) 3. Hetvi Barot (131016) 4. Rajvi Trivedi (131039) 5. Shachi Turakhia(131045) 6. Shailaja Sampat(131046) 7. Shivani Shah (131051) 8. Swasti Shah (131059)
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Electronics - fastest growing stream  Ahmedabad - IT hub in near future  E-waste: An Impending Challenge Dark side of Digital Revolution  E-waste: Electronic and Electrical waste [1]
  3. 3. RESEARCH  Primary Research - Questionnaires for faculty, lab instructors - Facts and figures from people related to handling of E-waste in college - Conducted survey amongst students  Secondary Research - Acts and Rules by the Government - Impact of E-waste on economy, environment and health - Case study - Guiyu (China) - E-coli : E-waste management process
  4. 4. CONSTRAINTS  No government initiative in terms of separate E- waste collection or recycling plant in the city.  Constant up gradation in technology - advanced features, better interface, compact size. Equipment with older technology serves as E-waste.  Limited production of E-waste since the college started about 2 years ago.  Lack of awareness about private E-cycling companies such as E-coli and ECS in city.
  5. 5. Analysis - I o On an average users (of maximum age 30) have utilized 3 cell phones per person. o Mostly (90%) people either exchanged their old phone or gave it to somebody who can reuse it
  6. 6. Analysis in College perspective:  E-Waste produced from the Electronics Lab (Electronic waste – IC chips, Capacitors etc.) is maximum about 3 kg per year. This waste is DISCARDED currently  Staff of IICT are not aware of the rating of the appliances and proper servicing time for equipment.  College prefers electronic devices with better quality for ex. as per information by CFL (Compact fluorescent lights) are used in classrooms  Electrical waste (switches, sockets, projector pins, tube lights, printing cartridges, air conditioner parts etc. electrical appliances, non repairable items) THROWN away currently. Analysis - II
  7. 7. SUSTAINABILITY PLANS  Separate dustbin and E-waste Collection Drive programs for collection and management of E-waste in college  Awareness about private E-waste recycling companies such as E-coli, ECS  Use of Rechargeable Batteries  ICT application - SmartBin for small scale recycling  Spreading awareness about e-waste through workshops, seminars, videos, E-waste theme based photography, poster, documentary, street plays, competitions .
  8. 8. SmartBin
  9. 9. SmartBin is the venture of M2M Telematics Ltd, Dublin, Ireland. Benefits:  Battery Life 5 years  Fully Autonomous Sensors  Movable and compact (For small scale recycling process)  Optimises E-waste collection process  Financial Benefits  Ecological Sustainability
