Oneness Biotech is committed to create a sustainable environment for the next generation, and we support the concept of a circular economy as we maximize the efficiency of resource usage through methods such as waste reduction and recycling. In addition to monitoring various environmental indicators of the plant to ensure compliance with all environmental regulations, a dedicated team of environmental safety and health professionals continuously promotes improvement plans to minimize environmental impact and progress towards the goal of “zero pollution.”
Oneness Biotech’s waste is divided into three categories: domestic waste of business employees, general industrial waste, and hazardous industrial waste. The domestic waste of business employees generated by business activities and production processes includes general waste such as fallen leaves collected around the plant that is cleaned and transported by the municipal unit of Pingtung County. General industrial waste includes waste paper, kitchen waste, and general waste from business activities, which can only be removed by approved transportation and disposal companies. Hazardous industrial waste is mainly composed of infectious waste mixtures and flammable industrial waste. Infectious waste is produced in the laboratory. It is sterilized by high temperatures, and then handed over to qualified operators for incineration. Flammable industrial waste is the solvent used during the production process, which was handed over to qualified waste treatment companies for incineration in the past. In order to move towards circular economy, the treatment of waste solvents was shifted to physical recycling since September 2020.
