The War on Climate Change: How Using Large Diameter HDPE Pipes Significantly Reduces Carbon Emissions. [PE]


Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 2010 Vancouver


In an era when global warming is having a significant effect on our climate and catastrophic weather events are devastating local communities, the use of innovation is of vital importance. It is a fact that as green issues continues to rise up the political agenda; the water industry is being forced to look towards more innovative solutions that play a part in reducing carbon footprints. Large diameter High-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes have witnessed a strong growth in usage, particularly within the water industry, and research suggests they can contribute significantly towards the green objective. This will become more evident in the future as the water and construction industries begin the systematic evaluation of the carbon footprint for every individual scheme. The main scope of this work is to illustrate the distinct advantage of plastic pipes in comparison to traditional material regarding the reduction in carbon footprint emissions. Keywords : Carbon Footprint, Emissions, Large Diameter HDPE Pipes
