Environmental excellence of Polyolefin Pipes [PE]


Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1998 Gothenburg


As the Environmental matters gain more attention, laws and regulations building on the principle of Sustainable Development emerge both on national and EU level. This concerns product applications as well as their chemical constituents. In the Nordic building and construction industry new interest has emerged after the Hallandsisen disaster last year in Sweden. Regarding waste legislation the focus has been on packaging, turning to automotive and electrical/electronics, with Building & Construction probably to follow soon.
This presentation focuses on the Health, Safety and Environmental aspects of the delivery chain, from raw material and additives to finished products and their recovery and disposal and the Borealis approach to these matters.
