Introduction

 

The demand for batteries has experienced exponential growth in recent years, driven by various factors such as government support for EV-based businesses and the widespread use of batteries in various applications. Unfortunately, this high demand has resulted in significant battery waste globally, raising concerns about environmental safety.

To address these concerns, the Indian government has introduced the Battery Waste Management Rules in August 2022, which prioritize the responsible handling and management of waste batteries. On August 22nd, 2022, the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Changes issued a notification, replacing the Battery (management & handling) rules of 2001, with the aim of promoting environmentally friendly practices for managing and handling waste batteries.

Some key highlights of the New Rules for Battery Waste Management and Handling are:

1. EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility)

Under the new Batteries Waste Management and Handling Rules, the government has introduced the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). This means that battery producers and importers are now required to enroll in the collection and recycling of waste batteries for reuse purposes.

2. Introduction of Centralized EPR Portal

As part of the new Batteries Waste Management and Handling Rules, the Indian government has launched a centralized online portal. This platform aims to facilitate the exchange of EPR Certifications between battery producers and recycling agencies, streamlining the process for all stakeholders involved.

3. Batteries Waste Recycling Standards

he new Batteries Waste Management and Handling Rules have established specific standards for the recycling of waste batteries. These standards include a minimum percentage of materials recovery from waste batteries, which will encourage the development of innovative recycling technologies for better resource utilization.

4. Strict Penalties for Violations

The new Batteries Waste Management and Handling Rules impose strict penalties on battery importers or producers who fail to comply with their Extended Producer Responsibilities (EPR) for waste batteries. Violators will face heavy fines as environmental compensation, and the collected fines will be directed towards the collection and recycling of waste batteries to ensure a cleaner and safer environment.

Applicability:

The Batteries Waste Management and Handling Rules apply to all entities involved in the collection, segregation, transport, refurbishment, and recycling of used batteries, including manufacturers, distributors, and consumers. These rules encompass all types of batteries, including portable, electric vehicle, automotive, and industrial batteries.

However, it is important to note that the Rules do not apply to batteries used in equipment related to the protection of essential security interests, such as weapons, ammunition, war material, and batteries designed for military purposes, or equipment intended to be launched into space.
