E-WASTE Management Program
The new Central Government of India guidelines, E-WASTE (Management) Rules 2016, have been issued. FELTON INDUSTRIES PVT. LTD. (Company) stands committed to complying with the E-WASTE Rules 2016 as an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). E-WASTE is defined as:
Electronic and electrical waste including rejects from manufacturing, refurbishing, and repairing processes, as well as scrap material and wasted materials from the Consumer or bulk consumer.
E-waste management is a very important task because it contains dangerous elements which can have adverse effects on the environment as well as on human health. Science-based recycling of E-waste can save the environment and prevent its potential negative effects on human health as well. Moreover, e-waste is also considered to be a source of valuable materials that are useful for the recovery of plastics, iron, glass, aluminum, copper, precious metals such as silver, mercury, cadmium, gold, platinum, palladium, and lead.

- The toxic components of e-waste mix with earth, air, water etc., causing health concerns.
- Plastic & rubber burning in open areas pollutes the air.
