Waste Management

We operates in the pharmaceutical sector, which generates a range of waste including hazardous and non-hazardous waste as result of its business operation. We are committed to effectively manage these waste streams and implement strategies to reduce waste generation, such as implementing recycling programs, reducing packaging material and optimizing production processes to minimize waste. Our waste streams includes waste such as ETP sludge, spent solvent, process residue, evaporation sludge, metal scrap, glass bottles, etc. We are continuously working to better manage the waste generated due to its operation and has implemented a waste management strategy to treat waste as resource and tries to incorporate the waste as some useful alternatives.

Glass or vial crushers have been provided in the units, where there is substantial generation of these items. All hazardous waste is disposed under manifest system in dedicated hazardous waste transport vehicles, having GPS tracking facility. The Company displays a great example of using 5R (Reduce, reuse, recycle, recover and rethink) waste hierarchy principal within its operation to manage waste in an efficient and effective manner.
