The objective of this conference is to address the issues of the plastic waste management ecosystem in India and devise a Roadmap for EPR implementation under the Plastic Waste Management Amendment Rules 2021. Over 300 stakeholders from Recyclers, Waste Management associations, Sustainability officers, line ministries, and Pollution Control Boards are taking part in this conference.
The Plastic Waste Management Rules seeks to mandate the handling of plastics especially single-use sustainably and phase them gradually. As the modern era proceeds further to accommodate development, we have come across the most flexible of modern resources that is plastic. Plastic has moulded itself according to the complex human need. However, every element has its own limitation. Excessive production and use of plastic have a negative impact dislodging the already precarious ecological balance. Sustainable management and reutilization of plastic is necessary to prevent plastics from leaking into the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem. Recycling has been the oldest and most recognized practice to stop plastic from leaking into the ecosystem and being reutilized to prevent further depletion of natural resources.
