The CO2 footprint of plastic pipe systems (EPD, CO2 footprint, LCA, Teppfa, environmental performance)
Papers # 2012 Barcelona
The conclusions of the EPD studies carried out ti
ll 2012 show that w
hen considering all
the categories of the LCA, the average
environmental impact of Plastic pipe systems are lower
than of comparable other materials. The CO2 footprint which is one of the parameters in the LCA
and environmental impacts i
s as well lower than of comparable other materials.

For the European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) it is important to have an insight into the environmental aspects during the life-span of plastic pipe systems all the way from the cradle to the grave.
The result of the studies allows TEPPFA and its member companies to distinct (for the pipe systems...
The European Plastics Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) and it Application Group Civils working group initiated a new project at the beginning of 2015, to find a way of improving the communication and promotion of TEPPFA and its projects to the industry. This project was divided into the two phases with the...
The European Plastics Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) deem it important to have an insight into the integral environmental burdens encountered during the life-span of particular plastic pipe system applications within the built environment. With this framework in mind, TEPPFA has set up a project with the...
