Life Cycle Assessment of PVC Water and Sewer Pipe and Comparative Sustainability Analysis of Pipe Materials

This 2017 Life Cycle Assessment of PVC Water and Sewer Pipe and Comparative Sustainability Analysis of Pipe Materials is the first comprehensive environmental review of underground piping systems in North America based on a 100-year life cycle assessment methodology. The overall review includes a study of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe conducted according to life cycle assessment (LCA) standards ISO 14040 series, and subsequent publication of a PVC pipe Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which complies with ISO 14025 standards and was independently certified by NSF International.
