We adopt a collection model using a hub and spoke structure to encourage people to come and give their E-Waste across our counter. Collection employees are provided with protective equipment. We use a closed container vehicle for transportation due to the hazardous nature of e-waste. After the collection, E-Waste is classified and appropriately tagged at our collection center. The warehouse has appropriate storage to ensure no environmental damage on any account. Further, the end-of-life electronics are directed to our state-of-the-art facility for safe and eco-friendly processing.
Reverse logistics include a collection of E-Waste from corporate business houses, retail chains/small outlets, bulk electronic distributors, factory warehouses, primary electronic manufacturers, and households. We are currently working with the unorganized sector of this industry to raise awareness among them about the detrimental effects caused on the environment and on their own health due to the crude methods followed by them in recycling hazardous E-Waste. We are thus trying to establish an organized E-Waste collection network for collecting old electronics from consumers.
A manual dismantling of e-waste into electronic circuit boards, wires, external cabinets, and casings at an initial stage is followed by a component-level dismantling using an automated de-soldering process.
Mechanical sub-processes such as stripping, crushing, baling, etc are carried out to separate metals from the non-metals. Following this step, embedded metals are recovered using dry technologies.
Other important processes in this phase are the de-population of printed circuit boards, size reduction of PCBs, shredding operations, HDD breaking, etc. This reduced material is passed over a conveyor belt to a granulation mill. The dismantling facility is completely green to the letter and spirit. The pre-processed components after the dismantling process are batch-fed into our recycling plant.
Handing over of Data Devices like HDDs, Media tapes, Flash drives etc. is a major challenge for any organisation while going for disposal of IT equipment.These Data Devices are loaded with lots of confidential information of the company & its clients and personal / secret information of the staff etc. and hence it becomes very important that before handing over such devices, all the data are completely destroyed.
SPR’s data destruction services helps clients get rid of this fear factor by availing SPR’s World Class Services of data degaussing / destruction, as per clients’ needs and data security policies.
At SPR, we have a shredding facility that enables 100% destruction of confidential data. Currently, we provide this service at SPR’s facility in the presence of our client. This way we ensure a complete transparency about the process. By shredding the data devices in the presence of the client itself, we relieve clients of their concerns relating to data security and data leakage.
Silicon Planet recovers base metals such as Copper, Ferrous metals and a mixed metal fraction containing trace elements of precious metals.
A magnetic seperator seperates ferrous components. The non ferrous fraction gets collected in a hopper and is further separated through electrostatic process. A cyclone separator separates any dust present in the granulated material.
The dust separated by the cyclone separator is fed to an air purification system where the dust and minute particles get collected and clean air is released into the environment. Our Recycling facility ensures that all the processes are pollution free and do not emit unclean air or discharge any untreated liquids. The emissions comply to clean standards and are free of VOCs. There are no effluents.
Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) or may be conveyed as Environment Protection Responsibility (EPR) broadens the responsibility of manufacturers beyond the factory gates to the end-of-life management of their products when discarded by the end user.
Extended Producers’ Responsibility concept was first time formally introduced in the European Union at the time of implementing WEEE Directive (i.e., Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Directive) in July 2006 to regulate movement of end-of-life EEE. Under the concept, producers / importers are responsible to take back their products from the consumer either at the end of life of the respective products or as and when the user wants to discard for disposal.

SPR partners with corporates across sectors to develop e-recycling programs that are customized to their specific needs, whilst balancing compliance, convenience and cost, through a highly efficient take-back and recycling program. The plans can be tailored as per the requirement of individual producers / manufacturers to ensure responsible management of end-of-life electronics products.
SPR’s scientific recycling and disposal methods aim to avoid any hazardous consequences to human health and the environment, which would be otherwise caused by the unscientific waste management. Through our state-of-the-art e-recycling facility and a process that is fully compliant with global environmental norms, we help our customers in greening our Planet.
