ATMP Hazardous Waste
Non-Manufacturing Hazardous Waste
AMD’s ATMP and research and development facilities generate small quantities of hazardous waste. Our total hazardous waste generation increased from 48 metric tons in 2009 to 151 metric tons in 2012. This was mainly due to the reclassification of scrap product sent off-site for precious metal reclaim as hazardous waste and increased assembly operations at our Suzhou, China site. Only a very small amount of hazardous waste is generated at our non-manufacturing facilities. We ensure that all hazardous waste is managed responsibly and 68 percent of this waste is recycled.
