Environmental performance

Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are a science-based tool used to evaluate a product's environmental performance over its complete life cycle. LCAs serve as basis for Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). 

Example of weight savings and reduced carbon footprint in a Food Production Facility

Based on the weight savings comparison below between COOL-FIT PE Plus, Carbon Steel SCH40 and Stainless Steel SCH10, we plugged in the numbers into the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator to illustrate energy and emissions data. This free calculator is available here: Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator | US EPA

Example of weight savings in a Food Production Facility

Results based on a saving of 156,652 Pounds of CO2 equivalent

This is equivalent to greenhouse gas emissions from:

  •  15.8 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles driven for one year

This is equivalent to CO2 emissions from:

  • 7,996  gallons of gasoline consumed 
  • 79,594 pounds of coal burned
