The Department of Science & Technology (DST) under India’s Ministry of Science & Technology has launched a program to support R&D projects in power industry waste management. Disposal and recycling of solar panels and battery storage waste is one of the specified areas for funding support.
The DST program aims to develop techno-economically feasible waste management technologies that can be adopted in small and medium-scale enterprises to improve their productivity and global competitiveness.
Scientists working in academic institutions, R&D institutions or laboratories having an adequate infrastructure to carry out the related R&D work are eligible to apply for DST funding.
“The end product of development shall be transferred to industries/suitable stakeholders for technology implementation. Hence, the project should be proposed with mandatory industry/suitable stakeholder participation, clearly stating the technical as well as financial terms of participation,” notified the DST.
