Polyethylene pipes are an important asset of water distribution networks and CIRSEE has developed good contacts with PE100+ Association to exchange information on performances and requirements of polyethylene pipes. Industry need forums to discuss general problems in a professional way and the PE100+ Association has been able to provide these opportunities; they are an ideal industry partner, open to the discussion with end users and engaged in deep and far reaching technical projects on key properties of PE pipes.
We also appreciate the geographical span of the PE100+ Association and its communication efforts for promotion high level quality standards in several countries; and expect to continue the collaboration in coming years with mutual benefits.
