The exponential growth in the industries has led to the release of huge quantity of wastes, potentially hazardous to the environment and the living organisms including mankind. Indiscriminate disposal of such wastes on land and water bodies has led to the contamination of surface and ground water supply due to chemicals leaking out of the waste dumpsites posing potential risk to human health. This triggered the mechanism to establish a system for safe disposal of such wastes. MoEF&CC has conferred great importance to the use of waste as raw material or as a fuel in line with the concept of circular economy and industrial symbiosis.
In order to create awareness amongst the stakeholder which includes individual industries, common Environmental facility operators, representatives of the industry associations, auditors, consultants, faculty members of technical institutes, NGOs and all others concerned and to build their capacity and thus increase overall compliance with reference to this new rules on Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016.
