Analysis and Verification of Climate-Positive Industrial Products

Challenge

An industry-leading chemical manufacturer asked us to demonstrate that their products were carbon-negative and could be marketed as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Approach

  • Their products are sold in over 90 countries, which represented a significant challenge given the different environmental and solar conditions the products are exposed to.
  • We performed a life cycle analysis, comprising the “cradle-to-gate” timeline from raw material acquisition and transportation, window film production, transportation to customer, use, to final disposal and recycling scenarios.

Results

  • Altanova developed an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), according to the International EPD System, that validates the environmental performance of a set of 14 solar control window films they produce.
