The amount of waste in proportion to production increased from the previous year. The targeted rate of
total waste (< 100 kg/product ton) was not achieved. The relative amount of waste was 111.3 kg/product
ton. The increased amount of waste can be partially attributed to the extensive construction and demolition
projects implemented at the plant.
The targeted rate of waste taken for reuse was achieved, which was 94.3%. Some non-vulcanised scrap
rubber and rubber crumb are reused in the plant’s own production as raw material in rubber compounds.
Waste delivered for utilisation
Various types of waste are delivered for further utilisation. The existing national collection and utilisation
channels for different kinds of waste make the utilisation process easier. In most cases, waste is utilised
as material. Apart from the separately sorted energy waste, only some scrap wood is utilised as energy.
Nokian Tyres handles packaging utilisation jointly with the Environmental Register of Packaging PYR Ltd, a community of packaging-industry producers.
Division of hazardous waste
The total amount of hazardous waste in 2011 was 318 tonnes, which corresponds to 4.33 kg/product ton.
All hazardous waste is taken to an authorised hazardous waste processing plant.
