The owner of about 300 tonnes of electronic waste, dumped in a conserved forest in Wang Namyen district of Thailand’s eastern province of Sakaeo, has been given 15 days to take all the waste back to Rayong, an industrial province on the Eastern Seaboard.

 

Mr. Boonyuen Noicharoen, who claimed he bought the electronic waste from Arisa Recycle Company in Pluak Daeng district of Rayong for recycling at the conserved forest in Wang Namyen district, has already been fined more than 300,000 baht for illegally undertaking recycling activities and for using more than five employees without permission. About 50 Cambodian migrant workers were found working at the dump site at the time authorities carried out a raid after they received complaints from villagers living nearby.

 

He said copper and plastic extracted from the waste would be sold to buyers in Sakaeo and Saraburi provinces, adding that he did not break any law because he had been granted to the permission to move the electronic waste out of Rayong province.

A modern Thai recycling plant.... 2019

It is using 100% renewable energy, with very well positioned giant nuclear light bulb that provides adequate lighting most hours of the day without causing any additional green house gas emissions. All the water used in process is delivered without use of any electrically powered pumps. Probably has negative carbon footprint.
