Annual Report 2008 - AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group NV

contaminants were metals

contaminants were metals (62 kg), fluoride (54 kg) and total suspended solids (2,844 kg). Additionally this water included 8,156 kg of chemical oxygen demand. Further, the large volume of water discharged to surface water from the mine site in Brazil contains additional suspended solids. Waste disposal GRI Indicator EN22 In both 2007 and 2008 all Advanced Materials Division facilities were required to report a detailed breakdown of solid waste disposal identifying all waste streams, classifying them as hazardous or non-hazardous according to local regulations and identifying their fate as reuse, recycling or disposal. In 2008 total waste disposed to landfill by the Advanced Materials Division totaled 15,843 metric tons, representing an increase of 1% from 2007. This waste represented 6.5 % of the total production of the company. The majority of waste generated in 2008 (77%) was non-hazardous. Although the total amount of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated in 2008 was greater than in 2007, predominantly due to building demolition, furnace relining projects and the inclusion of data for the Freiburg facilities, this was offset by initiatives to sell, recycle or otherwise beneficially reuse some materials traditionally viewed as wastes. These initiatives included marketing large volumes of materials traditionally disposed but which contain valuable, recoverable components, through onsite reprocessing to trash reduction including the introduction of office paper, plastic and scrap soda can recycling programs. REACH The most comprehensive risk assessment policy for chemicals in the world came into effect across the European Union in June 2007. Over the last two years AMG Group companies, particularly those located within the EU, have worked diligently to comply with the REACH regulations. This coordinated group effort has covered all aspects of AMG’s manufacturing businesses and included developing substance inventories, categorizing raw materials, intermediates and products according to REACH nomenclature and identifying risks, opportunities and costs associated with the new regulations. As of December 1, 2008 and in compliance with the regulations, AMG had pre-registered all raw materials it imports into the EU, and all of its products to ensure continued supply to our customers. Dedicated REACH managers are in place at a number of the manufacturing facilities to coordinate activities and work together to achieve efficiencies in the process. Additionally, AMG’s companies are members of several of the Consortia established to develop the information required. As REACH moves into its next phase, Registration, AMG will work closely with all members of the supply chain, Consortia and other Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF) members to ensure risk assessment dossiers are prepared and submitted within the regulatory timescales. 66 Sustainable Development
