Welcome to TEPPFA’s EPD Calculator!
TEPPFA is the leading voice of the plastic pipe and fitting systems in Europe.
Through this app, the European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association is eager to raise awareness of the value that plastic pipe systems offer for a sustainable future. The app is based on a collaborative study with two independent research institutes VITO and Denkstatt GmbH. Data for the plastic systems is provided by the TEPPFA member companies and is part of the TEPPFA’s voluntary Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method. Data for the non-polymer alternative materials (ductile iron, copper, concrete) is based on the publicly available figures. This scientific assessment of a comprehensive set of indicators concludes that throughout the life-cycle, from cradle to grave, the environmental impact of the plastic pipe systems is lower for most applications and along the majority of criteria, compared to the alternative materials.
Within the app you can select the pipe systems application area, material and environmental impact criteria. One can also view the complete Environmental Product Declarations on the plastic pipe systems.
