Project Eliminate Methodology PLAN • Waste Profiling • Impact Assessment •Team Responsibility • Documentation • System Review • Documentation Continuous ACT Improvement DO Cycle • Program Implementation • Operational Control • Training & Awareness • Documentation • Performance Monitoring • Documentation CHECK
  13. 13. Waste Generation Flow PACO SITE WASTE STREAMS Sulphonation By Product Factories Sachets Landfill Offices Scrap Materials Solid Waste Biodegradables Laboratories Recycling Other Recyclables
  14. 14. Unilever Waste Profile Recyclable Materials Cost (as of Feb. 2004) Wire (tanso) P90/kg Aluminum Cans (“Panta”) P45/kg Plastics (PE) P1/kg Cartons P1.50/kg “Malutong” P3/kg SOLD TO “Lata” “Sibak” P3/kg P7/kg RECYCLERS Newspapers P3-4/kg White Papers P5/kg Plastic Sacks P0.50/pc Transparent plastic bottles P20/kg Non-transparent plastic bottles P7/kg Glass bottles (Tanduay) P0.50/pc Broken glass P1/kg BROUGHT TO DUMPSITES Djbv gadbv
  15. 15. Priority Area and Approach Priority Areas: 1) Recyclables but un-segregated 2) Not Recyclable – Sulphonation By-product & Sachets
  16. 16. Action Plan 1. ZERO SULPHONATION LANDFILL ROADMAP JAN FEB MAR APR MAY JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC ESP SEGREGATION 1. Install 3-way valve at ESP 2. Characterization Study 80% Sulphonation 3. Set Changeover protocol Landfill Reduction LAS ESP RECYCLING 4. Install recycle loop 5. Trial incorporations 6. Observe effect on LAS quality USE OF CALCITE IN PAS/SLS ESP ACID NEUTRALIZATION 7.

  17. 17. Recyclables – Un-segregated I Identify 3R Reduce, Reuse, Recycle S Segregate
  18. 18. I3RS in Unilever Philippines BEFORE AFTER Segregation of Damaged Segregation of Recyclables Offices Flow Wraps at NSD Bars at PC Plant Factory Cristobal Segregated Recyclables at the Factory to be sold Segregation bins in the offices Segregation in the canteen PC NSD Bars (Residuals, Recyclables and Biodegradable)
  19. 19. I3RS in Offices It is a practice that used papers will never be thrown away. They are re- Color coded trash cans printed on the are placed in offices other side or re- and factories in order to used as board separate wastes that decorations. are recyclable (green) and non recyclable (blue).
  20. 20. I3RS in Offices – Assorted Wastes COMPOSTING OF BIODEGRADABLES SEGREGATTION AT SMOKEY Unsegregated Wastes MOUNTAIN RESOURCE RECOVERY CENTER (SMRRC) SELL RECYCLABLES RECOVERED RECYCLABLES ARE SOLD, PROVIDING PROCEEDS GO TO SMRRC COOP. LIVELIHOOD TO PARISH COOPERATIVE AT SMOKEY MOUNTAIN
  21. 21. I3RS in Canteens Segregation of Left-Overs RECYCLABLE RECYCLING MATERIALS CENTERS Leftovers ANIMAL FEED
  22. 22. I3RS in Production Sites – PC Plant BEFORE AFTER Major liquid raw materials were • ISO tankers (20 tons capacity) are contained in drums (150 kg used as containers. capacity). Drums were disposed • Low probability of dirt after use. contamination • Bigger capacity and reusable
  23. 23. I3RS in Production Sites – NSD Bars BEFORE AFTER Major solid raw materials were • Big bags (1 ton capacity) are used contained in sacks (50 kg capacity). as containers. Sacks were disposed after use. • Durable and re-used many times
  24. 24. I3Rs in Production Sites - Sulphonation CONVERSION OF SULPHONATION BY PRODUCT WASTE TO HOLLOW BLOCKS 45% of By Products are Converted to Hollow Blocks By Product Segregation Neutralized Neutralization By Product Hollow Block Technology

  26. 26. Hollow Block Technology FEEDSTOCKS PROCESSING PRODUCTS Sulphonation By product Laminates Hollow blocks/Bricks • Solids e.g. laminates and plastics are ground into 16 mm pieces. Process removes elasticity of plastics. LDPE Plastics •Process is claimed to produce zero waste, all by-products are brought back to the process.

  29. 29. Expanding Unilever’s work on solid waste to the community Study solid waste in the community 1) Pier 18 (15 tons characterised) 2) Pampanga isolated villages 3) Street sweepers in Divisoria 4) Estero de Paco floating waste
  30. 30. Expanding Unilever’s work on solid waste to the community Lessons from the waste studies 1) Detergent and cosmetic waste 0.5% total. 2) Paper, metal and many plastics recycled. 3) Flexibles packaging 0.1% total (Plastic bags 9%) 4) Flexibles small but visible – can now be recycled – the key issue is how to collect. Project Eliminate continues!
  31. 31. EXAMPLE FROM PBE We aim to help business help the environment …spread best practice …synergy between businesses Clean Fleet Management programme – a great example
  32. 32. CLEAN FLEET MANAGEMENT Group together businesses with fleets: share and compete Pilot group led by Meralco UNEP calculation tool pioneered. Partnership with Clean Air Asia
  33. 33. CLEAN FLEET MANAGEMENT …THE SELLING STORY It costs us a fortune to pollute… especially by burning fossil fuels. Cleaner fleets use less fuel.
  34. 34. CLEAN FLEET MANAGEMENT …Maintenance …Eco Driving training …Fuel selection …Fleet planning (loading, vehicle replacement) 15% fuel saving with current fleet.
  35. 35. EXPANDING CLEAN FLEET MANAGEMENT …More corporate fleets …Government fleets …Bus fleets
  36. 36. EMS – KEY CONCLUSIONS • Motivation is key: Top management support: make it a passion for everyone. • Understand the economics: More efficiency=less pollution= lower cost. • Good systems needed: part of normal business – import what you need but avoid alien systems. • Spread the benefits: to business partners: to the community.
