Limiting our industrial waste


Limiting our industrial waste is an operational priority to reduce our products’ footprint.

From 2008 to 2010, our total amount of industrial waste, by-products and sludge has remained stable at around 3.3kg per cubic metre.

Importantly, we measure our waste based on what happens after it leaves the site.

During this three-year period, the share of by-product and sludge for recovery -versus waste and sludge for disposal has continuously increased - to reach 92% of the total industrial waste stream in 2010

The remaining 8% are manufactured materials that are destined for final disposal in an off-site landfill or incineration without heat recovery.
