Non-hazardous Solid Waste Generation
BWXT continues to demonstrate aggressive landfill avoidance and recycling programs for non-hazardous solid waste generated at our facilities throughout the world. In all aspects of our business, we minimize waste and maximize reuse and recycling opportunities through routine evaluations of our operations.
Hazardous Waste Generation
Pollution prevention is promoted and integrated throughout all aspects of our operations. Although hazardous waste generation is not a significant part of our business, we constantly evaluate and reduce its generation where ever possible.
Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Tracking and managing energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is important from a business and environmental perspective. We voluntarily measure and track our GHG emissions and have developed energy consumption reduction strategies at all of our operations that will achieve significant reductions over the next few years.
While water is not a significant aspect of our global activities, it's certainly true that water is a critical resource and, as a global citizen, we are committed to managing our usage responsibly.
