Assessing the whole life carbon footprint of concrete pipes compared to alternate recycled HDPE (R-HDPE) pipes. In the Autumn of 2021, MPA carried out a simplified Whole Life carbon assessment exercise to understand the likely carbon footprint of pipes made of recycled HDPE.
Precast concrete pipeline systems are the UK’s choice for drainage and sewer solutions. With the inherent
benefits of concrete in terms of cost, strength, inertia and durability, precast systems are the preferred choice
with a design life in excess of 100 years.
MPA Precast is part of the Mineral Products Association, the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and industrial sand industries. www.mineralproducts.org
