We seek to maximise the reuse, and the recycling or recovery of materials. Disposal is always the last management option and when it happens it is first treated to ensure the waste is sent to the appropriate final destination.
These concerns are carefully assessed in the various phases of the plant life cycle - design, operation and decommissioning. This assessment can result in process changes and the adoption of end-of-line measures.
We establish operational priorities for waste management in accordance with the following hierarchical levels:
Waste management in operations is supported by risk analysis and assessment, which takes into account not only the harmfulness of the products/waste from operations, but also the capability and suitability of infrastructures and equipment to process and store them. In this way, we minimise the risks to ecosystems and human health.
Due to the refining activity, we produce a high amount of hazardous waste, which has special attention and guarantee of proper treatment.
We believe in the transition to a more circular economy, where the value of products, materials and resources remains in the business cycle for as long as possible and waste production is reduced to a minimum.
