Advansa announces reduction in CO2 footprint in ECO2Technology

Advansa has made an announcement regarding the decline in the Carbon dioxide footprint in its ECO2Technology for ThermoCool fibres which was confirmed by a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). The analysis was conducted by TNO which is an independent organization for applied scientific research based in Netherlands.

As per Advansa, the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) confirmed an average decline of 80 percent in the release of global warming gases as well as drop in the non-renewable energy used in the ECO2Technology that is being applied for its ThermoCool commodities.

The LCA is based on system expansion methodology and offers a consistent measurement of several criteria associated with the production of global warming gases as well as the use of non-renewable energy.

According to Advansa, the LCA also substantiates that the technology applied for producing ECO2 products indicates use of less Carbon dioxide footprint with exceptional moisture managing capacity and high comfort level.

The ThermoCool staple fibres are manufactured by applying modern recycling technology under which polymer from post consumer PET is changed by means of a high-tech production process into first-rate polyester fibre.

According to Advansa, the LCA reveals a decline of 80 percent in the Global Warming Potential (GWP) which is a model designed by the intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for measuring the greenhouse effect resulting from the release of Carbon dioxide, also popular by the name of carbon footprint.

The LCA also reveals a considerable decline in the Non Renewable Energy Use (NREU) data. The NREU is the sum total of all energy that is being used for complete life cycle based on non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels which cannot be renewed once used.
