There are close to 10 billion pallets in use around the globe, predominantly made from timber. Edge was commissioned by the plastic pallet manufacturer Range International to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment of their series of plastic pallets made from recycled plastic waste. The LCA results were benchmarked against typical pallets used in the market, including timber and conventional plastic pallets.
Edge developed an internal tool for Range International to use to develop and optimise their supply chain and production. Edge also developed a benchmarking tool for use by the sales team when engaging with potential clients, to demonstrate the life cycle savings potential from using recycled plastic pallets.
