Environmental Systems & Performance

The facility is equipped with wastewater treatment and exhaust systems that ensure compliance to environmental, health and safety regulations at the workplace. We ensure compliance with stringent international and local environmental protection regulations on industrial effluents and air emissions through:


  • Wastewater treatment systems to treat segregated waste streams from manufacturing and support systems
  • Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) abatement systems
  • High efficiency scrubber systems to remove acid and caustic chemical vapors


In addition to the above, scheduled (toxic) wastes are managed to comply with stringent regulatory requirements.

Waste Water Treatment
As per international standards, SilTerra analyzes and monitors the quality of waste water throughout the year. All waste water analytical results consistently adhere to the waste water standard of the Environmental Quality (Sewage & Industrial Effluents) Regulations 1979 in Malaysia.

Air Emission Facility
SilTerra is equipped with various exhaust systems such as scrubber systems, VOC abatement systems, general exhaust systems, to name a few. These state-of-the-art systems are designed to treat hot air, corrosive, flammable and hazardous fumes respectively from various buildings in SilTerra.

Waste Minimization
We systematically identify ways to reduce or eliminate waste primarily through source reduction and recycle, reclaim and reuse. Activities include:

  • Minimizing the use of hazardous manufacturing chemicals through operational improvements and process changes
  • Diverting materials from local landfills through recycling. The recycling program is wide and includes papers, newspapers, magazines, cardboards, packing material and metal parts
  • Striving for a paperless environment through the widespread use of electronic documentation and presentation, thereby reducing paper memos, reports, transparencies and other documents
