The Concrete Pipeline Systems Association (CPSA) is aware of a carbon footprint comparison study between UK traditional manhole systems and a new manhole system imported from abroad. Dutch manufacturers, Kiljstra, have referred to the study findings in a number of adverts and made several claims based on that comparison. CPSA believes that the results of the study were significantly affected by incorrect information and assumptions. A number of discrepancies were identified – these are detailed here
The brochure identifies 12 sustainability advantages of concrete drainage systems and offers information about the manufacture of products and why the environmental impacts associated with these systems are typically low. It also illustrates how concrete drainage products can be used to improve sustainability and reduce environmental impacts.
The publication is available at CPSA and BoxCA websites as a PDF download and is also available as a hard copy from British Precast. Please call 0116 253 6161 for your copy.
