With scientists predicting that if nothing changes in our plastic consumption habits, there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish by 2050, it’s not surprising that this year’s Earth Day theme is End Plastic Pollution. According a recent study, since the invention of plastic in 1907, 8.3 billion metric tons of virgin (non-recycled) plastic have been produced, generating 6.3 billion metric tons of waste, 79% of which has piled up in landfills while just 9% has been recycled. A total of 12 billion metric tons are expected to be in landfills or the environment by 2050 if current production and waste management trends continue.
At EOFPL we play a critical role in managing and protecting the environment with our waste recycling programmes.
At EOFPL we have over a year of experience in helping national and multinational brands manage their Extended Producer Responsibility in India. We manage and recycle with an extensive collection network that includes consumers and the informal sector.
For example, we are in collaboration with top multinationals like Dalmia Cement to segregate all plastic waste and process it into Refuse Driven Fuel that can be used in cement kilns.
We fulfil all the clauses within the Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016 that defines the Extended Producer’s Responsibility (EPR), as responsibility of a producer for the environmentally sound management of the product until the end of its life.
To take you through the process and assist you we have plastic waste experts, environmental engineers and lawyers. We have highly advanced plastic collection points, accurate supply chain and data monitoring and state of the art measurement tools to measure environmental and social impact.
