Vinyl2010: PVC Pipes Awarded by Eco-Devis
For the first time PVC pipes, stabilized with Calcium Zinc have achieved the top classification of ‘ecologically interesting’, from the renowned Swiss environmental organization, Eco-devis.
Eco-devis is a body incorporating private and public organizations, supported by the Federation of Swiss Architects and the Swiss Society of Engineers, whose aim is to promote the construction methods, which respect the environment. The organization’s classification system judges the environmental performance of construction materials, in order to help architects, designers, constructors, engineers and builders make informed environmental decisions when choosing products for any new building. It is also used as a specific requirement in the procurement phase, for the construction of both public and private sector buildings
The Eco-devis measures materials for total energy consumption from conception to final production. To achieve the top classification a product must not contain any environmentally damaging materials and must show evidence of being disposed of or recovered in an environmentally acceptable way.
To receive the top classification of ‘ecologically interesting’ a product will have been thoroughly examined in terms of all aspects of its environmental performance and impact, from conception to production. PVC pipes stabilized with Calcium Zinc are seen as being particularly environmentally friendly products; this has been acknowledged by both Eco-devis and the Swiss Health Authority.
