Reducing the volume of waste sent to off-site landfills for disposal
Promoting waste reduction is vital among efforts to form a sound material-cycle society. Nippon Shokubai sorts, collects, and recycles waste in addition to making other efforts consistent with our goal of achieving and maintaining zero emissions (volume of waste sent to off-site landfills for disposal is 0.1% or less of the total volume of waste).
In FY2022, in addition to continuing to rigorously sort and collect and promote recycling, we reduced the volume of waste sent to off-site landfills for disposal and maintained zero emissions by improving processes such that they produce less waste, reusing by-products, and treating product residues on-site.
