VinyLoop: Study Compares Recycled Material with Conventional PVC Compound

A recent Life Cycle Assessment Study benchmarks the environmental footprint of recycling against conventional production. The VinyLoop Eco-Footprint Study commissioned by VinyLoop Ferrara SpA, Ferrara, Italy, evaluates the environmental impacts of material recycled in the VinyLoop process, compared with virgin PVC compound, which is used in various plastics articles. VinyLoop reduces the global warming potential by 39 % and primary energy demand by 46 %. Recycling not only saves primary resources, but also avoids the incineration of plastic waste.

The experts of DEKRA confirmed in a critical review the methods and the alignment with quality criteria of ISO standards.
