A Lifecycle of Sustainability
Responsibility Through Research
Companies in the materials, chemical and earth sciences industries have a unique responsibility when it comes to environmental awareness. At IGI, business and sustainability go hand-in-hand. As a world leading refiner and manufacturer of petroleum wax and blended wax products, IGI operates on the front lines of sustainability for literally hundreds of products from dozens of manufacturers. This “view from the source” gives our customers added insight when evaluating their own supply chain sustainability efforts.
The Toronto Plant is 14001 ISO Certified. We are committed to minimize our environmental foot print, to comply with all applicable Environmental Legislation and interested party requirements and to continual improvement of our Environmental Manage System. Toronto Environmental documents and reports are available at the plant.
IGI – A Partner for Possibility
Our partnerships with companies in the recycling community are making exciting breakthroughs in emulsion/substrate separation that are going live in paper mills today. We are also involved with renewable products that leverage the inherent properties in wax coated paper fibers such as advanced particle board, roofing and decking used in the construction industry.
Our advanced technical projects address sustainability from a variety of perspectives including source reduction, environmental safety, waste utilization, advanced materials (compostable waxes, blended waxes and water-based coatings) and planned life-cycle management. These projects connect to our customer’s sustainability initiatives by assisting them with formulation, processes and strategic recycling and waste renewal strategies.
These commitments confront challenges in new ways, spawning better products, invigorating fledgling industries like compressed composite materials and giving rise to a global future with promise.
