Polypropylene Materials for Sewerage & Drainage Pipes with Reduced Energy and Carbon Footprints

Driven by a growing global conscience about our influence on the planet’s current and future climate and the scarcity of resources to satisfy a growing global population, product design that takes into account the product’s impact on both these factors is becoming increasingly important. In this paper a life cycle analysis is presented that looks specifically at two recently developed PP materials for S&D pipes, PP-MD and PP-HM, that have been designed to lower the energy and carbon footprint of the resulting pipes.
