Our activities in this area include in particular:
- minimizing the risk of environmental pollution by taking actions to preserving and increasing biodiversity as well as recovery and recycling of raw materials,
- undertaking activities aimed at reducing the volume of raw materials, greenhouses gases, waste generated, rational water management, increase process energy efficiency and usage of renewable energy,
- improving the awareness, responsibility and involvement on the part of all employees as regards environmental protection and work safety, as well as promotion of pro-environmental activities and the attitude of responsibility for one’s own and other people’s safety in the local community,

Reduction of CO2 emissions
SumiRiko Poland undertakes activities aimed at reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption through the introduction of highly efficient production equipment, optimization of production lines, as well as conducting energy diagnostics and developing solutions reducing energy consumption.
Technology for minimising environmental impacts
VOC (Volatile organic compounds), generated during the production process, are adsorbed and thickened on the adsorbers. They are then incinerated at a very high temperature in an afterburner, with the presence of a catalytic agent. As a result, only compounds not harmful to the environment are released in the atmosphere.
Industrial wastewater generated during the production process may not be directly released to the sewage system. Therefore, prior to that process the wastewater is pre-treated: first neutralized, then filtered by means of sediment traps and sand filters. Chemical compounds in the form of dry deposits are directed to the waste treatment company. The sewage water cleared in such a way is directed to the municipal sewage system. The sewage treatment process is fully supervised and monitored by internal and external laboratories.
The waste produced by us in majority is subject to the recycling process; 98% of our waste is recycled or reused (only 2% goes to landfill).
SumiRiko Poland manufactures a wide range of industrial rubber and resin products. Raw materials and other items containing various chemical substances are used in the manufacture of these products. We manage chemical substances appropriately to minimize their environmental impact in the vicinity of our facilities and to ensure workplace and product safety.
