Materials and Waste

We take managing the byproducts of developing our therapies just as seriously as creating the therapies themselves.

To help minimize our waste stream, we employ a variety of approaches. One of our primary methods for managing byproducts is to take advantage of the latest waste-to-energy technologies, which not only diverts waste from landfills, but also supplants some of the need to burn natural resources to create energy. We also work with other companies to compost foodservice waste and recycle previously discarded production components.

For details on our materials use and waste reduction initiatives and performance, please see our 2012 Corporate Citizenship Report and Performance Data.
