Recyclekaro Collaborates with BARC to Enhance E-Waste Recycling Efforts

e-waste company partners with premier nuclear research institution to extract high-purity copper oxide nanoparticles from PCBs, driving sustainability and economic growth.

Recyclekaro, a leading e-waste and lithium-ion battery recycling company in India, has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), India’s premier nuclear research institution. This partnership aims to leverage BARC’s advanced technology for extracting high-purity copper oxide nanoparticles from depopulated printed circuit boards (PCBs).

The collaboration holds promise for various industrial applications, including catalysis, antibacterial coatings, sensors, conductive inks, and water purification. Moreover, it is expected to generate employment opportunities across the PCB recycling process, aligning with circular economy principles and addressing stringent electronic waste disposal regulations in India.

Mr. Rajesh Gupta, Founder & Director of Recyclekaro, emphasized the company’s commitment to innovation within the recycling industry, highlighting the significance of the MOU in advancing technological capabilities. Recyclekaro’s efforts underscore its dedication to environmental responsibility and contributing to a more sustainable future.

The move is significant amid India’s annual generation of approximately 3.2 million tons of electronic waste, positioning PCB recycling as crucial for resource conservation, environmental protection, and economic growth. Recyclekaro’s ongoing efforts include establishing a Nickel Metal plant and engaging in discussions with new partners for technology transfer, reinforcing its commitment to environmental sustainability and a robust Circular Economy and Urban Mining model.
