Zero Waste to Landfill
Essex Furukawa has embraced efforts to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill. Our teams are working towards Zero Waste to Landfill status at all locations globally, and within our downstream management operations. By achieving this status globally we can reduce our environmental impact caused by the disposal of materials and turn waste into a valuable resource through beneficial reuse.
‘Crushing’ a Supply Chain Issue
Greening Phenolic Production
Looking at formulaic composition through each step of our supply chain is another example of the commitment made to sustainability.
MPC Saves 30,000 Gallons of Water
As a result of the new practice, the MPC is saving almost 30,000 gallons of water annually. A reduction of 75% as it had previously been using 40,000 and it is now down to just 10,000.
For a plant to achieve Zero Waste to Landfill status, 98-100% of all waste leaving the facility must be diverted from landfill as well as from the downstream material management organization accepting the waste stream.
