Re>Pal Cradle to Cradle LCA and Benchmarking
Range International (RI) is a company that manufactures plastic products from waste plastic sources, using a unique production technology, ThermoFusionTM. Range International’s product range includes Re>Pal pallets made from 100% recycled plastic waste.
Range International commissioned Edge Environment to compare the environmental credentials of various pallet options using ISO 14040 and 14044 compliant life cycle assessment (LCA). The study quantifies and compares the cradle-to-grave impacts (raw materials, transport, manufacture, customer use and end of life disposal) for Re>Pal and for comparable conventional wood and plastic pallets. The study was conducted for pallet manufacturing in Indonesia or Australia.
