In 2014, Dental Recycling International, Inc. (DRI) committed to endow its line of Amalgam Separators and chair-side amalgam recycling kits to the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences in New Delhi, India to advance local expertise in amalgam waste management among Indian dental professionals. Thus, the project has two primary components: logistical and educational. The logistical components involve the shipment of DRI's products, the installation of the Amalgam Separator units, and the recycling of the particulate and solid amalgam waste.
