Production Process

As part of our commitment to environmental management, we aim to improve in all environmental aspects, including emissions, waste water management, solid waste management, and management of resources such as water, energy conservation, and timber consumption.
Emissions are monitored by six Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) devices installed at the recovery boiler, multifuel boiler, common stack recovery boiler, bleaching plant, incinerator and lime kiln.
All equipment is maintained, cleaned and calibrated according to a schedule, and manual testing is carried out regularly by an external laboratory.

During the annual 2015 cycle, several repairs were made to reduce odor, and a backup system was installed in the incinerator to provide additional cooling water. Emission levels are far below those set by the government and we continue to work to reduce them further by:
  • Reducing emissions from causticizing and lime kiln of TRS by 5%, fine particles by 26% and opacity by 29% compared to 2014.
  • E Reduced HCL emissions by 16% and slaker vent particles by 18% from Chemical Plant Reduction compared to 2014 levels.
We are committed to good performance in liquid waste management, and all parameters such as pH, BOD, COD, TSS, SO4, Cl, Na, Ca and color are still below the limits set by the government. Management of solid waste is carried out continuously and is reused according to the permit issued by the Ministry for the Environment. We reuse solid waste such as dregs, grit, slag from coal gasification and boiler ash to manufacture concrete stones and paving blocks. Mud waste is used as solid fuel at the multifuel boiler. Boiler ash is also used continuously at HTI as fertilizer, and we are evaluating construction of a new landfill. We remain committed to water conservation, and have reduced water usage in many of our production activities. We also treat and reuse water wherever possible.
