Waste Management

Waste Management in PTTEP

Waste generated from the company activities are properly managed in compliance with the regulations of the countries where we operate. In conjunction with the local regulations, the implementation of PTTEP waste management also follows the below hierarchy which gives priority to avoidance of waste generation to remove and reduce and then reuse, recycle, recover, treat and dispose of waste respectively. To mitigate the environmental impact by changing the company’s waste treatment and disposal towards the circular economy concept, PTTEP aims to achieve zero hazardous waste to landfill by 2020, zero industrial hazardous and non-hazardous waste from process (Industrial Waste) to landfill by 2025 and zero waste to landfill by 2030.

With the intention of achieving these targets along with the effort to manage the company waste beyond local regulations, we have sought and proved the best alternative waste disposal methods for the industrial-specific wastes for years. In addition to reuse, recycle and recovery concept, the studies for turning waste to value products have continuously become the company focus in various ideas. It is considered being a value-added project for both community and government sectors.

Apart from the good waste management practice not only within the company premises, but we are also conscious of our responsibilities to the contractor waste management process. This is to ensure the contractor waste management facilities are operated in compliance with the regulations as well as PTTEP’s requirements. To do so, either the internal audit within our operating assets or external audit at the contractor facilities are regularly conducted to assess the level of compliance and to support the facilities improvement.
