Our High-Tech EPP achieves benefits beyond application requirements
High-Tech EPP (Expanded polypropylene) is highly versatile material used in a growing number of applications, starting at the food industry up to aeronautics. As a high performance engineering material, EPP provides a range of performance benefits for our environment, manufacturer and end-user.
Our raw material manufacturer laboratory tests are accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 by near 100 national and international standards in construction, railway, consumer products, automotive and aeronautics.
- Completed Eco-Efficiency Analysis according to the methodology described by NSF International (USA).
- Verification of this modern High-Tech EPP is more Eco-Efficient for the defined customer benefit than other alternatives as result of the analysis.
- Presentation of a third party evaluation (so-called Peer Review according ISO 14040).
The purpose of Eco-Efficiency Analysis is to harmonize economy and ecology. This involves carrying out an overall study of alternative solutions to include a total cost determination and the calculation of ecological impact over the entire life cycle.
The Eco-Efficiency Analysis was most recently validated by NSF International in 2016. The Eco-Efficiency Analysis follows ISO 14040:2006 and 14044:2006 for environmental life cycle assessments. The assessment of life cycle costs and aggregation to an overall Eco-Efficiency is based on ISO 14045:2012.
