Recycling waste management



Recycling efforts are at the core of efforts to preserve the environment. Thorough research and understanding of the environment is a primary requirement before any accurate assessment of the threats against environment can be made. For students who wish to contribute to the preservation of the environment and are inclined to a research-based career, the opportunities to work at a research organization can begin while they are still studying. While individuals do not participate in the marketing of recycling technology and methodology, they are directly involved in the development of technology and technology transfer.


Perhaps the most visible form of recycling is the variety of goods made from recycled paper that one can find in retail outlets across the country. From notebooks and binders to lamp shades and photos frames, manufacturers of recycled paper have made the recycled paper industry a multi-crore business, catering to both, the Indian and foreign markets.

Once the recycled paper is manufactured, the value-addition to the product is considerable enough that it offers a large scope to the designers in the industry. The earnings potential for a designer becomes particularly lucrative if they corporate sector reacts favorably to a designer’s work. So, the first step for design students would be to find the paper manufacturing show-rooms in their city and select the varieties of paper that they can work with. Following the completion of their designs, designers can exhibit their work for traders at numerous exhibitions and if their designs are selected, the earnings potential has no ceiling.

Fuel: The Next Step In Recycling

Until as recently as 2000, there were no rules for recycling waste oil in India. A primitive method of recycling oil remained in place which ironically, caused higher levels of pollution and health hazards than the waste oil itself. Furthermore, the sight of black

fumes being emitted from cars, which was nothing more than a consequence of waste oil being mixed with furnace oil, became common place on roads across India. Since 2000, the Central Pollution Control Board of the Indian government had taken the necessary initiative of banning the import of waste oil from the Middle East, the mixing of waste oil with furnace oil, the disposal of waste oil by incoming ships and by 2003, had laid down a new legislation for the recycling of oil.

Currently the petroleum industry is getting ready to usher in a new generation of fuel that is driven by fuel emission technology. In short this technology will prevent the release of any waste oil thereby preventing the emission of toxic gases which have been linked to the cause of bronchial diseases.

Fuel is a product that no matter what the industry forms the backbone of almost every type of production and experts in the field of recycled oil are certain that equipped with the skills about fuel emission technology the demand for skilled technologists in this field may go up.

Recycling technology will help in addition to reducing pollution in conserving the resources and preventing illegal adulteration. Thus it will ensure quality fuel, much lesser toxic emissions and reducing health hazards drastically.
