Dear List members ~

Can anyone help this gentleman from India out on the issue of
Extended Producer Responsiblity and Electronics? He is not
on the list, so please respond to him directly at pranay@ihc.cii.ernet.in

Thanks much,

John Reindl


Dear Dr Reindl

Thank you for your prompt response.

I am looking for information on Environment issues concerning the
electronics industry. This would include the entire Life Cycle
Assessment, Mineral Processing, EPR issues, DFE etc..

We would be looking at the actual EPR laws that have been
successful or proposed laws in different countries. We are also
trying to understand various issues that can promote a basic policy
programme for EPR in India.

I know I am being very far fetched and all-encompassing in my
objective but we need to put a strategy paper for the Industry
Associations so that we can motivate them to design EPR

I seek your assitance and guidance on this issue.

Best wishes,

Pranay Lal
