Reclaim You Life! - Health & Environment Policy

Take Stand, Be Responsible and Do Your Bit...

 

Giving life to dead and to unworthy should be the way and the lifecycle of any product we use. The process stimulates a chance, an opportunity to Mother Nature to breathe again and relive and reclaim her life. The waste, which starts a sequence of toxic elements risking health & environment, can be reduced to a great number and the motive of life can be achieved “Live and Let Live”. Varun Polymers has this motto to promote in life among human for the betterment of not only the present but also future.

For past 4-5 decades, we have seen huge change in the climate and one of the biggest factors in climate change is human influences rather environmental. The level of CO2 is increasing at a great pace due to emissions from fossil fuel combustion, followed by emission from industries. Human being is never out of idea. We need to realize it before it’s too late and start working for green initiatives. Hence, a small change in our approach can make big difference.To prove this, REACH Regulation and RoHS Directive came into the existence.

REACH Compliance


REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 is the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). It entered into force by the European Union (EU) on 1st June 2007.The REACH regulation contains a list of chemical Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs), which require special treatment due to their known and identified hazards. The known allowable quantity of SVHCs in the substance(s) or mixture is less than or equal to 0.1% of its total mass. At present, Varun Polymers is manufacturing products which do not have any of SVHCs or may have the SVHCs in allowable quantity less than or equal to 0.1% w/w. Varun Polymers ensures the compliance with REACH by constantly keeping close track with SVHCs candidate list and will continue to do so in future as well.

RoHS Directive


RoHS Directive (EC) No 2011/65 is the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and was implemented by the European Union (EU) on 1st July 2006. The ROHS directive banned the use of six substances — lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr (VI)), cadmium (Cd), polybrominated biphenyl flame retardants (PBB), and polybrominated biphenyl ether flame retardants (PBDE) — in electrical and electronic equipment. After review, Varun Polymers declares that to the best of our knowledge none of the hazardous substances are used or intentionally added in the manufacturing of our rubber chemicals.

No Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Rubber Chemicals


Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are formed during the incomplete burning of coal, oil and gas, garbage, or other organic substances. PAHs are usually found as a mixture containing two or more of these compounds. Few of the PAHs compounds are as follows:


  • a) Benzo(a)pyrene,

  • b) Benzo(a)anthracene,

  • c) Benzo(b)fluoranthene,

  • d) Benzo(k)fluoranthene,

  • e) Chrysene,

  • f) Dibenz(a,h)anthracene,

  • g) Indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene, and

  • h) Naphthalene. etc.


In general, more PAHs form when materials burn at low temperatures. High-temperature furnaces produce fewer PAHs. Fires can form fine PAH particles. They bind to ash particles and can move long distances through the air. Some PAHs can dissolve in water. PAHs can enter groundwater from ash, tar, or creosote that is improperly disposed in landfills and also can cause cancer. PAHs are found in coal tar, crude oil, creosote, and roofing tar, but a few are used in medicines or to make dyes, plastics, and pesticides.

Varun Polymers ensures that the rubber chemicals manufactured are free from PAHs or may contain the levels of restricted materials below the limits established by REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 or as drafted in REACH Compliance.

Varun Polymers have this pledge to make life better and also working hard to make earth a better place to live. We work for rubber recycling so that we can recycle the waste of used rubber tires and other rubber waste to the most optimum level. We also help you implement the process of “Rubber Recycling” end-to-end. We provide the idea, technology, timely workouts and initiating the entire chain reaction for rubber recycling plant.

Let’s together make some effort to save the planet earth and “Reclaim Your Life!”.
