Although you've never heard of them, they make your everyday life greener. The most recent additions to the Total Ecosolutions line — after cosmetics, printing inks, bitumen and fuels — upgrade pipe systems. The PPH 1060 and PPC 1645 polypropylenes are used for wastewater and drainage lines, which are thinner and more rigid than standard industrial pipes. This enables them to emit up to 29% less carbon. "Today our customers are increasingly eager to shrink their environmental footprint," explains the program's coordinator, Myriam Gourmand-Arnaud. "These two polymers, like the entire Total Ecosolutions line, offer them solutions that outperform the market standard in terms of environmental and health impact, for an equivalent outcome." The transparent labeling process is verified for each product and service by an independent expert consulting firm, which strengthens the credibility of our publicly voiced support for the environment
