In 2012, IPL established reduction targets for its Australian manufacturing operations for greenhouse gas emissions, water use, natural gas use for energy, and waste to landfill. They claim they are working to establish a baseline for future efficiency targets through gathering data from the global operations for energy use, water use and waste. They investigated the possibility of replacing the current materials used to manufacture bulking agents with recycled or renewable ones such as bio-fuels and green waste. The company carried out trials where waste oil was used in their fuel phase emulsion explosive product. They also researched ways to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from explosive blasting by using different products or blasting techniques.[1]
