2022 Eco-profile study now updated with improved data


Following its launch in February, the Euro Chlor Eco-profile has now been updated here. The consultant detected a mistake in one of the models used for the calculation of the greenhouse gas (GHG) effects (shown on page 4 of the report and below). The effect is substantial and positive for Euro Chlor:

Carbon footprint in kg CO2/kg product   February 2022 report Updated September 2022 report
Chlorine 0.80 0.71
Caustic (100% basis) 0.75 0.66
Hydrogen 0.64 0.55
Sodium hypochlorite 0.74 0.64
