Effluents and Waste Management

TIPCO Asphalt Group minimize wastes disposal and resource usage through '3R's principal; which focus on Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

GRI 306-1, GRI 306-2, GRI 306-4 and GRI 306-5 ISO 26000 and ISO 14064

Management Approach

   TIPCO Asphalt Group formulates a recycling strategy by establishing a policy, action plan and strategic goal for the next 5 years. These can be executed through knowledge-sharing to employees on waste reduction from production, distribution, maintenance, QC as well as office processes such as accounting and human resources. Each work unit will apply Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) tool (Makigami and Kaizen) on minimizing certain unnecessary work tasks.

Stakeholders : 

Employees, Government, and Community

Short-term goals :

  1. Zero significant product spillage during delivery
  2. Zero industrial waste disposal to landfill
  3. Reuse of waste materials (3Rs) accounts for 85% of total waste

Long-term goals :

  1. Zero significant product spillage during delivery
  2. Zero industrial waste disposal to landfill
  3. Reuse of waste materials (3Rs) accounts for 90% of total waste

Key Performances :

      The Group formulates a ‘3Rs’  concept; i.e., Reduce, Reuse, Recycle derived from TPM tool. For instance, treatment of QC lab waste. After a lab test, leftover waste will be dumb into a container while used apparatus will be cleansed with water, which will enter lab wastewater treatment system prior to plant wastewater system. With TPM implementation, tested samples can be sorted by types, then reused, and hence no leftover waste, accordingly. As for the wastewater treatment system, QC employees investigate causes of residue filter system failure which can help reduce spare parts needed for regular maintenance while improving system efficiency. This includes another innovation that can separate residue in water treatment tank and reuse it as raw materials in the production process. These processes also reduce QC lab wastewater amount that enters the plant’s main treatment system.

     1. No significant product spillage during delivery
     2.16.5 tons of disposed industrial waste to landfill. This below-target result is due to heat insulation replacement materials which must be treated with safe waste disposal to landfill method.
     3.Reuse of materials waste (3Rs) accounts for 90% of total waste
