Waste is an important aspect for all our production companies and there are ongoing efforts to minimise waste generation as well as recycling more. In 2016, we recycled 85% (75%) of our waste, 11% (8%) of which as energy recovery by means of incineration. A total of 17,390 (18,050) tonnes of waste were generated, 760 (1,680) tonnes of which were hazardous waste.
We sent 1,220 (1,360) tonnes to external landfill, which represents 7% of the total waste volume. This consists, for example, of process waste, which may contain contents of heavy metals that are too high for recycling or materials that cannot be incinerated, such as stone ceramics and composites.
