    Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) has recently launched an initiative called “Sound Management of Waste Disposal (SMWD)” in an effort to minimize and recycle e-waste. As a public sector venture under the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas and the second-largest Indian Oil Marketing Company, BPCL has committed to certifying all operational refineries and marketing facilities as Zero waste-to-landfill facilities by 2025. This initiative aims to significantly reduce the amount of garbage produced in the nation, making it an important step towards environmental sustainability.

    The increasing dependence on electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) over the years has led to significant amounts of e-Waste, which may contain harmful or toxic compounds and transport precious materials. The improper disposal of these substances can result in a number of health concerns and environmental harm, making incorrect e-waste disposal one of the biggest problems the world is facing today.

    To address this problem, BPCL has instructed its running refineries to limit trash production, adopt efficient waste treatment methods, and dispose of garbage through authorized vendors. The company believes in unlocking the circularity of resources and has decided to redirect the e-waste for recycling and refurbishing of non-hazardous wastes.

    The Research & Development (R&D) division of BPCL has played a crucial role in advancing this climate action. They have a reputation for developing novel technology, specialized goods, and cutting-edge skills that are geared towards both corporate expansion and sustainability. This initiative holds promise in inspiring specialist petrochemicals to adopt waste management and cleaner practices.

It is expected to have a significant impact on waste management practices in the country and inspire other companies to take similar actions towards environmental preservation.
