INOVYN has today published Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for its chlor-alkali and PVC product range.
The declarations confirm INOVYN’s position as Europe’s premier low carbon producer, resulting from investments and improvements delivered by the Company in recent years.
INOVYN’s EPDs were prepared using industry best practice methodology by the Institute for Energy & Environmental Research Heidelberg, one of Europe’s most respected and independent ecological institutes. The same methodology has been used by PlasticsEurope and Euro Chlor.
The EPDs evaluate INOVYN’s product portfolio against an extensive set of parameters including the extraction and refining of raw materials; energy production and supply; and resource inputs and emissions.
Comments Filipe Constant, Business Director INOVYN “The publication of our EPDs clearly demonstrates the very strong sustainability credentials of INOVYN’s entire industrial system and total value chain. They also confirm that INOVYN’s chlor-alkali and PVC products are a proven game-changer for industrial customers looking to reduce their own carbon footprint.”
Industry is continuously seeking readily available, low carbon raw materials to meet ever increasing demand for sustainable end products. With its EPDs, INOVYN offers its industrial customers the benefit of being able to report significantly improved eco-profiles based on credible, independently verified data.
Continues Filipe: “INOVYN’s focus is to become the low carbon partner of choice for the full range of industry sectors including building & construction, automotive, medical & healthcare, food & crop protection, and water treatment.
“These EPD declarations are clear evidence of our ongoing commitment to accelerate the transition towards a fully circular economy and solidifies INOVYN’s progress towards a carbon-neutral status for all its products.”
