This site provides detailed information on the recycling infrastructure. It also focuses on risk factors associated with the petrochemical industry and addresses environmental concerns.

Recycling Infrastructure is related to the ill effects of petrochemical pollution and industrial effluents discharged during their production. The Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Government ofIndia, is the considered the highest authority that deals with recycling infrastructure associated with pollution.

Recycling infrastructure facilitates elimination of toxic materials relating to pollution and its ill effects. Recycling Infrastructure is structured to minimize or eliminate monetary loss, environment contamination, and depletion of natural resources. TheIndian Recycling Infrastructure associated with toxic residues and industrial effluents for the protection of environment is at par with world standard.

TheIndian Recycling Infrastructure arrests the burning issues of Petrochemical industry's toxic byproducts, and cover areas like -

  • Environmental hazards concerns
  • Disposal concerns
  • Industrial effluents are disposed off openly into water bodies and thus contaminating ground water level
  • Low quality consciousness
  • Insufficient safety measures
  • Safety norms are not at par with world standard
  • Insufficient basic infrastructure for the petrochemical industry
  • Prevalence and use of old technology
  • Unorganized industry and operates in small clusters
  • Disposal of heavy metals and industrial lubricants
  • Disposal of radioactive materials and radio active waste material
  • Disposal of heavy water
  • Discharge of industrial effluents into water bodies
  • Hospital wastes
  • Improper disposal of non-degradable material

The government ofIndia has suggested the following measures for the development of recycling infrastructure:

  • Adoption of cost effective cleaner technologies should be encouraged
  • Implementation of waste minimization techniques and adoption of appropriate pollution control measures
  • Discard and discourage technologies which do not conform to the quality of products
  • Spreading awareness messages through programs for the prospective and existing entrepreneurs on usage of cleaner technologies and pollution control
  • Waste minimization for improvement of productivity and creation of Waste minimization circle
  • Assistance for sustainable development to be facilitated by the Government ofIndia through fiscal incentives, technology, trainings etc
  • An additional system of taxation to be introduced based on concentration of waste
  • Encourage industry to regard 'pollution' as an economic problem
  • To decide the cost of water, power, fuel, etc through market instruments
  • Tax exemption on waste selling, resource recovery and reuse to be introduced
  • Incentives may be introduced on waste selling, resource recovery, reuse, etc
  • Scattered business units to follow stringent pollution control regulations
  • Allowance for capital investment and cleaner technology from foreign and private players
  • Simplification of Environmental clearance procedures for the industries located in industrial estates
  • Encourage Common Effluent Treatment Plant
  • Encourage common captive power plant and steam generation unit
  • During relocation of units detailed action plan to be prepared based on
  • environmental risk assessment
  • change of technology
  • waste minimization
  • Small industries to get assistance from government
  • Further Research and development of cleaner technologies is proposed
