Hazardous Waste Management

Recycling hazardous waste reduces the consumption of raw materials and the volume of waste that must be treated and disposed. We have therefore undertaken various initiatives at our factories to manage hazardous waste.

Improvements in waste management

  • At the Kasna factory, we rationed carton, introduced half-cut barrels and extended drop pipes for material transfer to reduce polythene waste in paint-packing operations
  • Commissioned Pressure Leaf Filter (PLF) machine in Resin House (RH) to reduce waste filter aid generation
  • Cleaned penta and phthalic jumbo bags by washing them in caustic soda
