Climate Friendly Bins for Sustainable Procurement

Climate Friendly Bins for Sustainable Procurement

Following the investigation and establishment of a carbon footprint for its plastic waste containers, ESE World has launched a carbon configurator to support its customers’ drive to implement sustainable procurement policies.

The new software tool was launched at IFAT 2018. It allows ESE to configure a customer-specific bin – in terms of volume, bin type, colour, share of recycled material and transport – and provides a better understanding of how all these factors will affect the bin’s overall impact on the environment.

Combined with the bins’ carbon footprint, which shows the impact of each phase of their lifecycle, this enables ESE to identify potential improvements when using specific parts or materials.

Results of the assessment show that the most significant emissions occur in the phases of material procurement and pre-processing. Bin production itself accounts for less than 1% of total emissions thanks to the fact that ESE factories use green energy. Not surprisingly, the amount of recycled plastic used has a very strong influence.

However, the chosen colour of the bins will determine the extent to which recycled HDPE can be used. ESE produces bins with a high content of recycled HDPE up to almost 100%. To help customers' climate targets, climateneutral bins are also available.
