IHS Chemical Carbon Footprint Yearbook details
This study presents a cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of polypropylene (PP) from all its primary manufacturing routes as well as for biopolypropylene, which does not yet exist commercially (but is technically feasible).
Recycling programs using curbside collection typically displace less than 50% of new polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Community programs with plastic bottle take-back, mandated separate collection, or deposits on bottles tend to report much higher displacement rates. For regions that already have a recycling infrastructure, the aim should be to boost recycled PET (rPET) displacement of virgin PET (vPET) significantly above 50%. For countries with adequate space and little recycling infrastructure, disposing of bottles in landfill generates a lower carbon footprint than recycling or incineration. This report is an independent evaluation of the carbon footprint of PET bottles with an analysis of secondary packaging from cradle to grave and from production of raw materials through to disposal.
For years, polyethylene has been under public pressure. Laws have been enacted to discourage and even ban its use in numerous cities and countries around the globe. This report takes a detailed, objective look at this issue and its complications. This report provides a fast, easy, inexpensive way for those in the polyethylene chain to benchmark themselves — by ethylene feedstock, by region, by grade (HD, LD and LLD) and by eight different polymerization processes.
Carbon certification could cause nearly half of biodiesel capacity and half of bioethanol capacity in Europe to lose its tax-advantaged status
