Een EPD (milieuproductverklaring) schetst de verschillende milieuaspecten van deze polyethyleen (PE) drinkwaterleiding
EPD: Polyethylene (PE) pipe system for water distribution
The European Plastics Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) deems it important to have an insight into the integral environmental impacts that are encountered during the lifespan of particular pipe system applications. With this framework in mind, TEPPFA has set up an LCA/EPD project with the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO).
The present EPD outlines the various environmental aspects, which accompany the polyethylene (PE) pipe system for water distribution, from the primary extraction of raw materials up to and including the end of life (EoL) treatment after its reference service life time.
