Water Footprinting of Wastewater Pipelines

Water Footprinting of Wastewater Pipelines

A comparison between concrete and plastic pipes shows that the water footprint of a concrete sewer pipe is between 2.6 to 6.7 times lower than an equivalent size plastic pipe. Download here.

Carbonation (Part 2) Comparing the Carbon Footprints of Concrete & Plastic Pipes

Carbonation (Part 2) Comparing the Carbon Footprints of Concrete & Plastic Pipes
Concrete pipes compare favourably to polypropylene and HDPE pipes when installed with a full granular surround and the effective carbon footprint of a DN2100 concrete pipe including carbonation can be around 38% lower than a DN2100 HDPE pipe. The gap is significantly bigger when other bedding designs are used.Download here.

The Carbonation of Concrete Pipeline Products

The Carbonation of Concrete Pipeline Products

CPSA has published a new Information Sheet which looks at how carbonation can have a positive impact on the carbon footprint of concrete pipeline products. The Information Sheet, entitled "Carbonation (Part 1) How it Reduces the Carbon Footprint of Concrete", shows that the amount of CO2 absorbed can effectively reduce the cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of a concrete pipes by almost 10%. The carbon emissions of concrete pipes can therefore look markedly different if such factors are included in the carbon auditing process.
