Waste management

Eastman takes great care to manage our on-site waste production, and we recycle many materials that could otherwise become waste through manufacturing processes like cogeneration.

The 2021 hazardous waste rate indexed to production was 0.013kg waste/kg production.

Our integrated global supply chain is committed to developing and using materials that are recyclable, reusable and waste-reducing, whenever possible. For example, we reuse our fiber drums to package our waste materials, sell our plastic drums to drum reconditioners for further use, and clean our metal drums before selling them for scrap, which ensures that no drums are wasted. We also reuse drum pallets that are in excellent condition, leading to fewer pallets being discarded and fewer pallets purchased.
