Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste generation from our ongoing operations increased slightly in 2015. Waste minimization efforts were offset by an increase in waste generated at a European facility that began purifying an off-gas from a neighboring facility. While this had a positive impact on reducing CO2 emissions, it generated hazardous waste due to the flue gas clean-up. We are re-evaluating the characteristics of this waste.

(Waste generation as provided in the table includes hazardous waste shipped off-site for recycle, incineration, landfill, or treatment and disposal. Waste shipments are reported on a calendar year basis.)
