CO2logic has carried out the calculation of a comparative product carbon footprint (PCF) of different types of layers for Ontex.
Over 100 different materials were examined, including flakes, super absorbent polymers (SAP), plastics, resins, fabrics, surfacing, adhesives, etc.
The study will help Ontex with the eco-design of its products.
It also shows that the most environmentally friendly solution depends on a number of factors such as the type of materials used, the place of production and the products’ end-of-life processing.
Based on this, Ontex will be able to continue working towards reducing the environmental impact of its products with an enhanced and more nuanced view.
