Hyderabad, Sept. 9

Ramky Enviro announced it had received the Central Pollution Control Board's approval for its integrated e-waste recycling facility at Hardware Park, Hyderabad.

The CPCB authorisation provides the permit to recycle 10,000 tonne of e-waste annually, which makes Ramky the biggest e-waste recycler in Andhra Pradesh. The facility is equipped with environment-friendly technology and can serve a variety of electronic waste.

Mr Raman Nanda, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ramky Enviro, in a statement, said: “The facility is designed to cater to industrial, domestic and IT sectors across the geography with our logistics network. We are looking forward to the new ‘E-waste Rules,' likely to be gazetted shortly by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, which will give a boost to the volumes and the business and will also support the green initiative of the Government of India.”

This facility is capable of recycling more than 98 per cent from e-waste, and the rest will be disposed off scientifically, he said.

It has the complete package of services — collection, transportation, storage, dismantling, shredding and recycling of all kinds of electronic and electrical waste — to provide safe and secure destruction services and to protect intellectual property rights.

Ramky plans to establish more e-waste recycling facilities and strengthen the logistics network. It has applied for the requisite approvals to the Pollution Control Boards of various States. The first facility has been set up in Andhra Pradesh at Hardware Park, Hyderabad. Another facility is coming up in Bangalore.
