Project Title: Implementation of Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) Management Programs for Electronic Cooperatives (ECs) and Safe e-waste management (PCB-WEE).
Project Description: The project aims to achieve effective management of Persistent Organic Pollutants – Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (POPs-PBDE) from WEEE, PCB-wastes and PCB-contaminated equipment, assisting the Philippines to meet its obligation to the Stockholm Convention.
The project is expected to consistently accomplish the National Implementation Plan (NIP) through supporting segregation and disposal of PBDE-contaminated plastic from the general e-waste stream and reviewing technologies that can be adopted to address PBDE management by subsidizing the disposal of PCBs from rural cooperatives and enhancing the suitability of the existing facility to treat PCB-contaminated materials including solids and metallic parts.
Project Duration: January 1, 2017 to January 31, 2022
