On the occasion of International Recycling Day, which is being celebrated tomorrow, #Seat has announced that it is focussing its environmental improvement actions this year on reducing waste. Over the past 8 years, #Seat has managed to generate 34% less waste in its facilities, and in the next few months is going to implement measures designed to reduce production waste by up to 60% in the next six years.

Among other initiatives, #Seat is going to prevent waste generation and address optimising separation in order to obtain more recycling and reuse of production waste. The company also aims to further refine the waste generated at different stages of the production process, such as paint and sealant slurry.
