Waste management

Our long-term goal is to eliminate waste to landfill. 

Waste to landfill is a measured key process indicator (KPI) and is reported at several levels each month. Ahlstrom’s stated long-term goal is “zero waste” to landfill. Many of our sites have already achieved this goal, while other sites still work to identify and develop alternatives. In 2015, we saw a slight increase in waste to landfill from our manufacturing facilities. Market conditions and economically viable alternatives provided challenges for us. However, the five-year trend solidly reflects the progress and commitment to this endeavor.
