Carbon Footprinting Services
The Carbon Footprint (CF) is a subset of the LCA. The CF is the overall amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with a product along its supply-chain, and sometimes includes GHG's from use and end-of-life recovery and disposal. Causes of these emissions are, for example, electricity production in power plants, heating with fossil fuels, transport operations and other industrial processes.
The carbon footprint is quantified using indicators such as the Global Warming Potential (GWP). The GWP's for different emissions are added together to give one single indicator that expresses the overall contribution to climate change of these emissions.
Drytech has track record in carbon footprinting services. We have assessed the carbon emissions associated with the manufacture, transportation, use and disposal of goods leading to whole-life analysis.
