On behalf of Euro Chlor, a specialised external consultant has prepared an eco-profile of the chlor-alkali main products (chlorine, caustic soda, hydrogen and hypochlorite). The work has been critically reviewed by an expert office and approved according to the PlasticsEurope Product Category Rules PCR version 2.0 (2011-04), ISO 14040/44 2006 and ISO 14025:2006 standards.
The results of this “cradle to gate” study integrates the production of salt/ brine and electricity, as well as of the utilities and other materials used in the process.
The report is now available for integration in the downstream users’ studies. A short version with the key results can be downloaded here. This document is in the process of being updated.
