The EPR Conference will Assess Its Success in Achieving Circularity and the Future Roadmap

Come Thursday 21 March 2024, to echo and assist Hon’ble PM’s net Zero Mission on the occasion of Global Recycling Day, Policy Times Chamber of Commerce & RLG, under the aegis of UN SDG and in collaboration with Punjab State Pollution Control Board, Goa State Pollution Control Board, Kerala State Pollution Control Board, CIPET, and CMET is organizing a Conference on ‘Role of EPR on Circular Economy & Post-Recycled Market’ at Multi-Purpose Hall, India International Centre, New Delhi.

As global concerns about sustainability intensify, the imperative to transition towards a circular economy has never been more pressing. In this landscape, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) emerges as a pivotal mechanism, not only for mitigating environmental impact but also for shaping a resilient post-recycled market. On the occasion of Global Recycling DayPolicy Times Chamber of Commerce, under the aegis of UN SDG in collaboration with Punjab State Pollution Control Board, Goa State Pollution Control Board, Kerala State Pollution Control Board, CIPET, CMET & RLG is organizing a Conference on ‘Role of EPR on Circular Economy & Post-Recycled Market’” This event aims to make a significant roadmap for Indian recyclers to set a strong benchmark for the post-recycled market.

Today, humanity is poised to face the threat of extinction. To avoid the brunt of nature’s ire,  strategies for integration of EPR into circular economy holds immense potential to make the world safe for our future generation. By incentivizing producers to design for recyclability and incorporate recycled materials into their products, EPR fosters a closed-loop system where resources are continuously regenerated, reducing reliance on virgin materials and minimizing environmental degradation.

India can be the largest start-up ecosystem from its current third position with over 1,00,000 start-ups if a more focused and balanced culture and investments in the sustainability sector can be achieved which today is one of the most attractive sectors for thriving start-ups as many youth are opting their ventures in this sector. Indian plastic recycling market alone is hovering around 5.47 million tonnes in 2023, likely to grow and set to achieve a hefty growth with a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.57% through 2029. Since plastic waste is increasingly posing a grave environmental challenge, sustainable waste management has become more relevant than ever. To ensure the process of recycling, reuse or end-of-life disposal with accountability, Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) makes the producers responsible towards the disposal of plastic they inject into the market across its life cycle.  Through EPR, many of our brand owners and producers have opted for various methods of recycling and end-of-life disposal of their plastic packaging which includes co-processing, waste to energy, plastic to oil, road making industrial composting etc.

Objectives:

  • To assess the effectiveness of existing EPR regulations with respect to opportunities in post recycled market
  • To look for the scope of innovation in Recycling Technologies best suited for market requirements
  • To bring into focus the modern global approaches with respect to post recycled market
  • To look into the impacts of EPR on society

Distinguished Speakers:

  • Dr. Hanif Qureshi, IPS, Additional Secretary Ministry of Heavy Industries, Govt. of India
  • Dr. Nitin Ramesh Gokarn, IAS, Addl.CS & PS Housing & Urban Planning Dept. & State Tax dept. Govt. of UP

Key benefits of EPR in the context of circular economy and the post-recycled market include:

  • Resource Conservation
  • Waste Reduction
  • Market Stimulus
  • Environmental Protection

Taking into consideration of current challenges, major stakeholders like governments, businesses, and consumers must collaborate to enact and enforce robust EPR policies. Their strategies should address producers concerns. EPR hold the paramount importance in the quest for a sustainable future. EPR facilitates the transition towards a circular economy while catalysing innovation and resilience in the post-recycled market. A true compliance of EPR regulations seems to be a prerequisite for a more equitable, prosperous, and environmentally responsible society.
