SIF Environmental Policy:

Our environmental policy is to reduce our carbon footprints by usage of recycled materials & making minimal impact to the environment by our production activities.

Below are some of our initiatives in this direction:

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle – We use several thousands of tons of recycled scrap iron as part of our environment conservation drive.

More than 95% of are molding sand is recycled and is prepared from our sand recycling plant.

Go Green Initiative – As a part of our “Go Green Initiative” we have planted trees and greenery all around our factories and surrounding areas.

Use of Renewable Energy – We have installed solar panels for generating electricity in our factory which is utilized for powering our office buildings. This is a small initiative by us for the start of use of renewable energy thereby reducing our carbon footprint.

Some Interesting Recycling Facts

  1. Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatthours of electricity. This is enough energy to power the average home for 5 months.
  2. The process of recycling paper instead of making it from new materials generates 74 percent less air pollution and uses 50 percent less water.
  3. Manufacturing recycled paper uses 60 percent of the energy needed to make paper from new materials.
  4. Recycling steel and tin cans saves 74 percent of the energy used to make them.
  5. There is enough aluminum thrown away every month in the US to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet.
  6. A steel mill using recycled scrap reduces water pollution, air pollution and mining waste by about 70 percent.
  7. When you throw away a aluminum can you waste as much energy as if you’d filled the can half full of gasoline and poured it into the ground.
  8. Recycling aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 100 watt light bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours and a TV for 2 hours.
  9. Approximately 88 percent of the energy is saved when plastic is made from plastic rather than from the raw materials of gas and oil.
