Unilever Pledges To Deal Sustainably With Sachet Waste In Developing Countries

August 13, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
As part of its Sustainable Living Plan initiative, Unilever committed to coming up by 2015 with a sustainable business model for managing wastes produced by single-use sachets the company uses to make its brands affordable in developing countries. Unilever is testing the feasibility of using pyrolysis, a technology that turns sachet material into fuel and recovers up to 60 percent of energy. Hindustan Unilever’s factory in Pondicherry, India, succeeded in extracting fuel from sachet waste and using it to power its manufacturing plant.
