Battery Waste Management and EPR

Introduction and scope of the regulation for Battery Waste Management

To ensure safe and environment-friendly processing of waste batteries in India, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change has issued a notification titled “Battery Waste Management Rules, 2022”. The new rules replace the Batteries (Management and Handling) Rules, 2001. Producers, traders, consumers and establishments involved in the collection, segregation, transportation, reprocessing and recycling of waste batteries are covered by these rules. The regulations apply to all types of batteries, regardless of chemistry, shape, volume, weight, material composition and use, including electric vehicle batteries, portable batteries, automotive batteries and industrial batteries.

 

 

A central online portal for registration under the Battery Waste Management Rules will be available. It will also allow a mechanism for the exchange of EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) certificates between producers and recyclers/reprocessors to meet producers’ obligations. The new rules impose a minimum percentage for the recovery of materials from spent batteries and also require the use of a certain number of recycled materials in the production of new batteries.

These battery rules will undoubtedly ensure that the Indian government’s vision of promoting a circular economy is fully realised, with EPR mandatory for all stakeholders. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in India levies an environmental compensation on manufacturers who fail to meet their Extended Producer Responsibility targets, responsibilities and obligations set out in these rules.

EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility)

Extended producer responsibility means that each producer of electrical and electronic devices is responsible for the channeling of e-waste to ensure environment-friendly management of this waste. Extended producer responsibility may include the introduction of a take-back system, the establishment of take-back points or the agreement with authorized dismantling companies or recycling companies.

The manufacturer can take action here individually or together with producer responsibility organizations.

EPR Portal for E-Waste Management

In India, there is an EPR portal for e-waste (Portal for Grant of EPR Authorization and PRO Registration Under E-Waste (Management) Rules).

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) of manufacturers is governed by the issuance of an EPR permit. For issuance of an EPR permit, manufacturers defined below must submit Form 1 of the above regulations to the CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board). This online e-waste management system is an online portal through which applicant producers can apply for an EPR permit online. This module is an EPR application module that is limited to the online application submission and the issuing of the EPR permit. All parties involved such as manufacturers, PROs, dismantlers, recyclers and reprocessors must register in this system. Transporters and take-back points/centres are included in this system by manufacturers, PROs, dismantlers, recyclers and reprocessors. Manufacturer means any person/ company, irrespective of the sales technique used, such as distributors, retailers, e-retailers, etc., who manufactures and offers electrical and electronic devices for sale and its components or consumables or parts or spare parts under its own brand or offers electrical and electronic devices for sale and its components or consumables or parts or spare parts assembled under its own brand and manufactured by other manufacturers or suppliers or offers imported electrical and electronic devices for sale and its components or consumables or parts or spare parts.

However, according to the publication in the Official Journal, producers, distributors, consumers and all establishments involved in the collection, separation, transport, treatment and recycling of waste batteries are affected by this regulation. Based on previous CPCB regulations, a foreign manufacturer is not eligible as an applicant. The authority needs an Indian company as a single point of contact to control the administration. Therefore, it is very likely that only importers/brands/manufacturers with a presence in the country will be eligible as applicants for the Battery Waste Management Regulation.
