Radici Chimica Obtains OEF and PEF Conformity Assurance
Radici Chimica SpA, a RadiciGroup chemical company engaged in the production of polyamide 6.6 (Radipol) and related chemical intermediates (Radichem), has recently become the first chemical company in Europe to obtain certificates of conformity for its Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF – issued for all aspects of the production plant) and its Product Environmental Footprint (PEF – issued for PA6.6, HMDA, adipic acid, nitric acid, MAB, diamine heads and tails, and CO2 ).
The two certificates received from the certifying body Certiquality are an important step for Radici Chimica and its environmental protection work plan. This achievement came after signing, just this past July, a significant agreement with the Italian Ministry for the Environment to trial test a new methodology for calculating the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) recently introduced by the European Commission. The new methodology was introduced to improve the availability of reliable and comparable information on the environmental performance of products and organizations, with the goal of harmonizing the different measurement methods available today.
