What is EPR for Battery?

EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) of Battery is the responsibility of the Producer, Importer, and Manufacturer to manage waste batteries in an environmentally safe manner to prevent any adverse effects that could harm human health or the environment from any substances contained in the waste batteries

The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change in India has issued a notification titled “Battery Waste Management Rules, 2022 to promote the safe and eco-friendly processing of waste batteries. These new rules replace the previous “Batteries (Management and Handling) Rules, 2001 and apply to Producers, Manufacturers and Importers engaged in the collection, segregation, transportation, reprocessing and recycling of waste batteries

What is Battery Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)?

Battery Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach that holds battery producers responsible for managing the collection, recycling, and disposal of batteries at the end of their life cycle.

How does Battery EPR work?

Under Battery EPR, battery producers are obligated to finance and/or manage the collection and recycling of batteries, ensuring they are properly disposed of or recycled at the end of their useful life. This includes setting up collection points and recycling facilities.

Who is responsible under Battery EPR?

Battery EPR typically holds battery manufacturers, importers, and sometimes retailers responsible for managing the end-of-life disposal or recycling of batteries. These entities are required to take financial and operational responsibility for proper battery waste management.

What types of batteries are covered under Battery EPR?

Battery EPR typically covers all types of batteries, including rechargeable batteries (e.g., lithium-ion, nickel-metal hydride) and single-use batteries (e.g., alkaline, zinc-carbon).

Is collaboration between stakeholders necessary for Battery EPR?

Yes, collaboration between battery producers, government agencies, recyclers, retailers, and consumers is essential for the successful implementation of Battery EPR. Effective coordination ensures efficient collection, recycling, and proper disposal of batteries while minimizing environmental and health impacts.
