Since 2010 we have been revising our sustainability goals to ensure they are pertinent to our operations and help us develop more sustainable practices. Waste materials, such as plastic, wood, metal, are separated and sent for recycling. We tend to limit the use of pigments in our products, to reduce the intensive use of cleaning fluids in our production cycle. In the cleaning of the installations, the solvents have been replaced by products less volatile and reusable for more cycles, specially esters.
During the year 2014, the waste material produced and destined for incineration, was less than 0.5% of the total quantities of products put on the market.
Chemix complies with the European Community regulation on chemicals, REACH, select and maintain constant monitoring of the raw materials used and our qualified suppliers, according to the REACH standards. Chemix restricts the use and dissemination of products that are particularly toxic to humans and the environment.
Chemix's sustainability strategy is focused on developing innovative and environmentally sustainable products that compete in a global economy, achieving the highest standards of safety, health and environmental stewardship.
