India's e-waste generation is reportedly growing at a rate of more than 20 per cent and is expected to cross 800,000 tonne mark by 2011. This is a huge business opportunity and many are now seen entering the sector.

Not many are aware that more than 80 per cent of a vehicle by weight can be reused, remanufactured or recycled in some way and protect the environment from the hazardous materials. If not all parts of the automobiles could be recycled, tanks, batteries and tires constitute the list of inevitable parts that should go into recycling to protect the environment.
