Takeda: The reflexes of 4.0 Industry

Like every pharmaceutical company, Takeda generates different types of waste daily. The management of this information, when performed in different spreadsheets, became a challenge for the industry, making it difficult to have a global view of all waste generation. In this scenario, it was necessary to use a single control system for the entire operation that would generate a reduction in production losses and costs, directly or indirectly.

The project was developed in partnership with GreenPlat™ due to a need to introduce the concept and practices of 4.0 Industry in the environmental area. The solution aimed to facilitate operational control and internal movements, centralizing all the documentation and information necessary for waste management in a single location, with easy access and vast flexibility. GreenPlat™ helps, with a holistic view, the pharmacist to achieve its Zero Landfill purpose. In addition, the software helps the customer understand how and where waste is generated, eliminating or reducing the problem at its root.

Takeda sees and has already been able to prove several gains with the use of GreenPlat™. With the implementation of the solution, it was possible to see more security and confidence in your information, concentrated in a single environment. In other words: information management is not spread across different software and spreadsheets. The tool brought more flexibility to the management system, optimizing employees’ time and productivity. The company also achieved significant results in its Zero Landfill project: in the first half of 2019, it has already managed to reduce the shipment of waste to these locations by more than 50%.

"With the acquisition of the system, we were able to understand which residues we sent to landfills, which quantities were generated and from there we established projects for reduction. From January until now, we have already reduced more than 50% the shipments of waste to landfills with the use of PV, with its easy and objective control."
