Ashland Production System

Ashland is currently implementing a new process to better monitor sustainability initiatives and manufacturing practices. The Ashland Production System (APS) is an improvement system configured to deliver operational effectiveness and efficiency. Once fully operational, Ashland will utilize the system to track plant initiatives for reductions in energy and water consumption, GHG emissions, waste production, and more. APS will also serve as a tool to analyze current manufacturing processes and identify opportunities for leaner manufacturing. The assessment of our products’ life-cycles will allow Ashland to further reduce our environmental impact, as well as provide more sustainable products for our customers and support their supply chain sustainablilty efforts. APS is currently implemented at 8 sites, and will be introduced to 5 more sites by 2020.
