Centre For Environmental Research and Education

CERE has been running the Envelope Recycling Project with students from a municipal school in Mumbai since many years. The aim of the project is to raise environmental awareness amongst underprivileged children by doing practical activities related to environmental conservation, in this case recycling and reuse of ‘waste' items such as envelopes. Therefore along with awareness-raising, enjoyment and stimulation, which unfortunately is often lacking in many schools, this project contributes to some degree of emotional/life-skill development in the children, particularly in terms of motivational, self-confidence, decision-making and team building skills.

All children attend the classroom sessions but voluntarily participate in the envelope recycling project, recycling as many envelopes as they can manage in a week during their own spare time and not during class. Corporate firms contribute to the project by sending CERE their used envelopes and buying back the same envelopes after they have been recycled for their internal mail. There is a small reward system in the form of small useful, gift items, such as school-bags, books, water bottle, pencil box, etc.

Essar Shipping Ltd.

Recycling the safe way
Essar's newest ships have bagged Green Passport certifications, reaffirming the company's commitment towards sustainability

Essar Shipping's two newest ships – MV Kishore and MV Ashok – have been awarded the Green Passport certification and declared asbestos-free and devoid of any ozone-depleting substances.

When ships are recycled, almost nothing goes to waste. Materials and equipment are almost entirely reused. The 2003 guidelines on ship recycling, named the Green Passport, require ships to have an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM). A ship's IHM is maintained throughout its operational life. Prior to recycling, additional details, such as hazards in stores and waste, are added, thus helping the recycling yard formulate a safer and more environmentally-sound plan to decommission the ship. It also helps to raise staff awareness of materials onboard the ship that may require special handling.

LG India

LG National Recycling Program
E-waste is any electronic product or accessories which is not useable and it is at it’s end of life for example old defective products like refrigerator, TV, mobiles, chargers, ear-phone etc. 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 fully functional”. E-waste generally consists of those substances contained in an electronic product which can bring adverse effects to the atmosphere and hence managing it in a proper way is important. Apart from affecting the environment it can also affect the health of the people.

Recycling of old electronic product is beneficial in following ways:
There is need to encourage recycling of all useful and valuable material from e-waste so as to conserve the ever depleting natural resources. Recycling end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste.
Also scientific disposal of e-waste reduces the environment pollution. The correct disposal of old product will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health.
Followings are negative consequences of disposal of product if not done in scientific way :
Toxic material present in e-waste get mixed with earth, air, water etc and causes health issues.
Oil & Gases which is present is some of e-waste like compressor and CRT causes environment pollution.
Batteries contains highly hazardous element.
Burning of rubber & Plastic in open area causes air pollution.
In India, E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2011 have been notified by the Central Government. LG stands committed to implement E-Waste Rules. LG has done tie-up with the PCB (Pollution Control Board) authorized e-Waste recycler for facilitating our customers to enable them to dispose off e-waste products after its end-of-life*. In this process, the customer would be interacting directly with the a uthorised agency meant for handling the e-waste products without involving any 3rd parties.To maximize resource efficiency through LG Consumer Durable products recycling, LG Electronics works closely with all consumer durable supply chains including authorized service providers, distributors, merchandiser’s customers, and the recycling industry.

Guidance on the Disposal of End-of-Life Products
Consumers could contribute to resource conservation and prevent potential environmental problems by a simple action — the proper depositing of their old consumer durable products and its accessories. Electronic waste is to be disposed off separately from the general waste stream via designated collection facilities identified by LG Electronics. For that customer has to register a request on LG CIC (Call Center 1800 180 9999).

Recycling of Products:
Many customers might think that end-of-life products are worthless, but they still contain many reusable or recyclable materials.. Let's see how all parts of old products could be recycled*.

Valuable metals are used as component materials for the circuit board, LCD module, and camera module. 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.
Plastic materials are used for structural components such as the case and cover. The plastic materials that have been collected are recycled as energy resources after going through a heat recovery process. Alternatively, they can be used as a form of recycled plastic once they have been broken down and processed. Recycled plastic can be used to produce products such as traffic cones, plas tic fencing, and car bumpers.
It is important to collect batteries separately, given the variety of batteries that are used. Li-Ion batteries are frequently used in mobile phones. Cobalt can be collected once the batteries have been pretreated to avoid the risk of explosion during the recycling process. It is possible to sell the cobalt that is collected or use it as a raw material for products such as padlocks and speakers.
Paper is the main component used in packaging. Paper can be recycled. It is then used as recycled paper or in products made of paper.
*The above usages are only suggestive and may not necessarily mean about the current usage

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 theirend-of-life product.
