Carbon footprint of concrete and plastic pipes.
As members of the Concrete Pipeline Systems Association (CPSA), Stanton Bonna are very proud to have participated in the CPSA/Carbon Clear study into the embodied carbon of concrete and plastic pipelines.
This exacting study was conducted to widely recognised international standards and proved that the cradle-to-site greenhouse gas emissions of concrete pipes are generally better than plastic with up to 35% lower CO2e for DN 2100 pipes.
It also showed DN 1200 circular precast manhole systems have a 30 to 43% lower carbon footprint compared to DN 1200 traditional manholes, 1250 x 1250mm box based manholes and DN 1050 plastic manholes.
The three full reports from the independent study are available on the CPSA website. Click here to download them free >
