Hazardous Waste

In 2014, hazardous waste generation from ongoing operations decreased 1.2 million pounds due to waste minimization efforts. We have compiled a relatively complete nonhazardous waste data set for North America and continue to pursue compilation and reporting for global, non-hazardous waste.

In 2011 Air Products achieved its goal to reduce hazardous waste generated in the U.S. and Europe by 20% from a 2005 baseline. A new hazardous waste goal that is global in scope is being developed internally and after approval will be publicized.

(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.)
