Saying no to landfill in India

Givaudan has reduced recycled waste by 85 tonnes, eliminating the need for landfill and incineration at its facility in Jigani, Bangalore, India.

The manufacturing facility at Jigani, Bangalore, India, is working towards 2020 reduction targets for energy (20%), water (15%) and waste (15%).

Jigani has developed a new waste management system, based on the principal of waste-type pyramid segregation, which classifies waste into hazardous and non-hazardous materials. As a result, the site no longer uses landfills or incinerates waste and the absolute quantity of recycled waste decreased by 85 tonnes in 2013.
