Independent analysis of ourgreen credentialsTo ensure that our products areas eco-friendly as possible wecommissioned the experts atthe University Of East Anglia(UEA) Low Carbon InnovationCentre.They completed an extensiveCarbon footprint assessmenton our eco packaging productswhich we’ve made available tobe downloaded.
What environmental impact doesour packaging have?The overall goal of this lifecycleassessment is to produce a preliminaryestimate of the global warming impact ofthe maize based packaging filler product.Also another reason for carrying out thisassessment is to help the client (LeavsLtd) understand which processes maycause relatively greater emissions in orderto improve the performance of the finalproduct.
The drying processThe drying process could be the most significant contributor ofgreenhouse gas emissions to the production of this product.Improvements in crop drying fuel efficiency, using non-fossil fuelheat sources or wasteheat would significantlybenefit the productionemissions of Popfil andLeafill.
So What’s the final Carbon footprint?The estimated carbon footprint of the blended packing filler is 18.7kg CO2 equivalent per m3The results are alsobroken down intoemissions eachstep of productproduction.
