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. Sixteen of our 28 sites have already achieved this goal, while other sites still work to identify and develop alternatives. In 2016, waste to landfill from our manufacturing facilities remained virtually unchanged at 10.2 kg/ton. However, the five-year trend solidly reflects the progress and commitment to this endeavor.
