JK Tyre Receives Certification For Zero Waste To Landfill Initiative

Home grown tyre major, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd., has received certification for its initiative - Zero Waste to Landfill by The British Standards Institution. Being at the forefront of sustainable growth, this initiative is an extension to achieve and demonstrate JK Tyre’s Environmentally Sustainable Goals and Go green Initiatives in Tyre Sector.

Under this initiative, the aim is to stop the disposal of waste to landfills or to incineration without energy recovery – it is either totally eliminated at source or recycled off-site. Except for medical and sanitary wastes, all other waste streams must be recycled to meet the concept of zero waste to landfill.

Mr. Anil Makkar, Manufacturing Director, JK Tyre & Industries said, “We at JK Tyre have always strived to achieve the quality benchmark for all our industry-leading manufacturing practices as it is our commitment to give back to the environment, we operate in. We are proud of the JKTIL top team to coin the slogan – Zero Waste to landfill and we hope to receive multiple recognitions towards our continued efforts in the development of the society and sustainable development.”

JKTIL has developed a robust Integrated Waste Management plan for all types of wastes – such as rubber compounds, scrap green tyres, cut flaps, trimmings, used tyres, etc. in a controlled and transparent way. It also developed an Audit system for contracts of recyclers. The IWMP also includes used oil, e-waste, etc. in its five plant locations, said the tyre maker in a release.

Under this journey, JKTIL engaged with the British Standards Institution for verification of its system as per ISO 14051 and verified that the waste generated is not going to landfill in any way. Generation, collection, segregation, storage, treatment, and disposal in the different processes were also calculated and traceability of waste was also confirmed from the vendors who were taking the scrap.

The British Standards Institution (BSI), has audited 5 manufacturing locations in Rajasthan, Chennai, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttrakhand. During the course it confirmed that no waste, either solid or liquid was disposed to landfill and recommended JKTIL all 5 manufacturing locations as a ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL PLANTS.

JK Tyre is a responsible corporate and giving back to the community is central to the culture of the Company. JK Tyre is not only driven by the need to make the world a better place through the manufacturing of a safer and technologically advanced product, but also by widening its prosperity circle.
