However, officials admit that bags below permitted standards are clandestinely brought in from neighbouring states and used by roadside hawkers and vendors. Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) officials said estimates suggested that around 3 to 5 per cent of municipal waste comprised of plastic. Mumbai generates around 10,000 ton solid waste daily. "We are planning to ban plastic in stages beginning with plastic ...

Reducing toxic emissions during recycling of e-waste 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Contemporary history can be characterised by an ever-increasing dependence on modern gadgets to carry out our daily tasks — be it machines that wash our clothes or a sophisticated personal computer which acts as a window to the world. The growth of distribution networks, regular upgrades and lower prices of these devices have made them more affordable than ever before, and have resulted in a new waste stream: e-waste. Electrical and electronic devices, discarded at the end of their useful lives, end up as e-waste. Dismantled devices are either recycled, incinerated and/or landfilled.
