In HRC, we manage our air and water emissions to minimise our impact on the environment. Guided by our HSSE Policy, we are committed to protect the environment by using resources and energy efficiently. As a responsible corporate citizen, we do monitor the quality of air and water surrounding our refinery diligently.
Environmental, Health and Social (EHS) Impact Assessment
We integrate environmental and social factors into the way we plan, design and take investment decisions for new projects, per our HSSE policies.
Before we initiate new major projects, we systematically conduct an EHS Impact Assessment to ensure we reduce any potential negative impacts on the environment and surrounding communities by:
- Safeguarding the health and safety of employees and surrounding communities
- Reducing disruptions to the communities
- Lowering harmful air emissions
- Reducing impact on biodiversity
- Using less energy, water and other resources
- Managing wastes responsibly
Managing Waste Responsibly
HRC strives to reduce or eliminate the discharge of waste materials that negatively impact the environment. The main sources of solid wastes are Spent Oil-Water Emulsion, Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) Sludge and spent catalysts from our Long Residue Catalytic Cracker Unit (LRCCU). We use government-approved and licensed contractors to treat and safely dispose all hazardous wastes. In our efforts to minimise the need for disposal services, we consistently look for ways to reduce, recycle or recover generated waste. An example would be the re-use of spent catalysts as raw feedstock for cement production.
