According to government figures published by India’s 28 states and 8 union territories, we generated almost 3.5 million tonnes of plastic in 2020–21. On the other hand, almost a year after India banned single-use plastics (SUPs) to combat plastic waste and pollution, plastics are still in widespread use across the country. However, given the fragmentation at the household level as well as the heterogeneous character of the many waste streams, analyzing the performance and usefulness of EPR models is a pretty difficult and complex procedure.

This webinar of the month will bring together notable players to demystify EPR models for plastics and analyze the status of SUP management in India in order to do a full economic and environmental cost-benefit analysis, as well as devise a strategy to account for social and economic repercussions.
