Evonik conducts life cycle analyses of 70% of sales

Aug '16
German specialty chemicals producer Evonik Industries said it has already conducted life cycle analyses of around 70 per cent of external sales generated by its three chemical segments.

This exercise is part of the sustainability analysis of its businesses with the aim to extend this to 80 per cent.

Since 2009, the interdisciplinary life cycle management team at Evonik, which comprises scientists and engineers, has performed more than 100 life cycle analyses of products, processes and entire sites.

Evonik's procedure comprises a broad spectrum of methods, including life cycle assessments based on international standards like ISO 14040ff.

“Life cycle assessments comprise a cradle-to-grave analysis covering the environmental impact of products at all stages in their life cycle from the raw materials to disposal,” the company said.

Another area of application is life cycle-based calculation of the carbon footprint of products, in addition to cross-referencing of existing findings from life cycle assessments of comparable products. (AR)
