EMPRI has developed linkages with several agencies, industries and ​​NGOs working in related fields and intends to extend the collaboration process with eminent and reputed agencies.

  1. ​​Training on Plastic Ban: Plastics are non-biodegradable. Because of this, plastics remain in the environment for very long period causing damage to the environment. Recycling of plastics is very cost intensive and hence reducing the use of plastics is highly essential for managing solid waste. Plastic does not decompose/biodegrade easily and hence remains as garbage for a long time polluting the land. Plastic when burnt releases cancerous furans and dioxins which are harmful for the environment and pollutes the air we breathe. During rainy season the plastic flows along with other solid waste into the drains and chokes the drains. It also flows into waterbodies such as rivers, lakes and oceans causing pollution. Burnt plastic ash pollutes the ground water as well. Animals like cows, dogs, pigs, birds etc., feeding on garbage also eat plastics. Plastic gets inside the alimentary canal of these animals creating problems like choking, internal injuries etc., leading to their death in extreme cases. When plastic-laden trash is burnt, it releases harmful furans and dioxins which are bad for health. The discharge of plastic into rivers, lakes and oceans pollutes water thereby affecting the aquatic flora and fauna. The plastic containers in the solid waste act as breeding ground for mosquito as they accumulate water resulting in the spread of diseases. Due to the harmful effects of plastic, the Government of Karnataka has taken a proactive step to ban the use of Plastics in the State and make Karnataka a Plastic free State. Karnataka State passed the state wide plastic ban order on March 11, 2016: (Plastic Ban Notification) under Section 5 of the Environment (Protection) Act 1986 vide. Gazette Notification No. FEE 17 EPC 2012, Bangalore dated 11.03.2016. It was published in the Karnataka Gazette on the same date. Further awareness is being created among the implementing officers of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike(BBMP), Urban Local Bodies(ULB's), Karnataka State Pollution Control Bo​ard (KSPCB), Commercial Tax Department, Legal Metrology Department through training programmes, videoconferencing etc,. trainings for officers of revenue and food and civil supplies departments will be taken up shortly.
