PVC-O, the most eco-friendly solution for pressure water transportation
The environmental footprint of PVC-O pipes includes the energy consumption and the CO2 emissions generated throughout the pipes life cycle, such as: extraction and raw material processing, PVC-O pipe production, installation and use, and other subsidiary activities like the transport.
The parameters basically considered relate to the type and amount of raw material used, the energy efficiency during the manufacturing process and the quality of the finished product, and the Molecor PVC-O pipe life expectancy. Therefore, TOM® PVC-O pipes avoid the unnecessary use of energy resources, reducing the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere throughout its useful life.
