Sustainability at Heubach India, Gujarat
The only way to ensure our commercial success over the long term is by adopting a sustainable approach in dealing with the requirements and needs of our stakeholders and the environment.
Sustainability & Compliance
As a manufacturer of chemical raw materials, we cannot completely avoid environmental impacts, as our company uses up resources, and the production process produces emissions, wastewater, and waste. However, we can continuously minimize the risk of polluting factors and thereby ensure that we take careful, responsible action with respect to the environment.
Heubach India committed to improving our environment, and as a part of our plantation program that has stretched across 25 years, we have succeeded in planting more than 50,000 saplings & plants in and around our manufacturing units.
50,000 saplings and trees
Heubach India is proud to host a large number of species of trees, plants, birds and insects as a result of our biodiversity initiative. This has come about from a plantation program stretching across 20 years, which has resulted in planting more than 50.000.
Recycle Reuse Reduce
Heubach India has a DSIR Recognized Research & Development Center, where 3R – Recycle, Reuse & Reduce is the objective. We take pride in developing greenery effient product development with minimum waste generation plants and trees in and around our manufacturing units.
As part of the Integrated Waste Management, Heubach India has developed a unique process to manufacture Aluminium Hydrotalcite using an Eco-Green synthesis, which is widely used for multiple applications.
Heubach India recognises that water is the most precious commodity and over the years extensive R&D has been dedicated to water recycling. Over one third of our original water consumption is recycled back for use in our plants. Development work is ongoing to further recycle treated waste water.
85% Reduced Solid Waste
Heubach India is the first pigment manufacturing company to introduce IWMSystem (Integrated Waste Management) where waste streams from the green and blue plants are used in a third global size plant to manufacture Aluminium Hydroxide. This reduces solid waste by 85% and is a perfect example of Responsible Care practice in manufacturing. We are the only manufacturer of Phthalocyanine Pigments in the world having Integrated Waste Management System.
Further to our water initiative we have recently installed a sewage treatment plant based on MBBR technology and recycle our treated sewage water on a daily basis is used in our utilities and for gardening.
