There were no incidents of significant spills in the reporting period. There were no cases of any water
bodies/habitats significantly affected by water discharges and/or runoff in the reporting period.
The total waste generated for FY2018 was 17 474 metric tons, of which 52% (9 165 metric tons) was
classified as hazardous.
Solid/semi-solid waste generation (excluding wastewater) and disposal and possible pollution to landfill is
a topic of concern for the industries – this includes any waste generated from off-specification production.
The management of hazardous classification and resultant disposal routes is of critical concern.
Of the total waste 36% (6 209 metric tons) was disposed by incineration, 44% (7 710 metric tons) was
disposed to landfill, and 20% (3 455 metric tons) reused, recovered or recycled.
Waste management forms a part of the overall Archroma Environmental Safety Management process.
The majority of waste is generated as a result of the intrinsic chemical manufacturing processes and their
specific process yields, raw material packaging materials and residues from on-site effluent treatment
plants. Wherever possible waste is analyzed whether it can be recovered and/or reused and recycled.
The hazardous classification of waste, and resultant disposal methods, is made according to the specific
national regulations governing the production site. There are no significant transboundary transport of
Of the hazardous waste, 65% (5 999 tons) was disposed by incineration. An amount of hazardous waste,
10% (840 metric tons) was disposed in appropriately licensed landfill/deep well injection sites.
