Keep on talking or start acting....
Many reports, meetings, publications and major initiatives are presented to reduce CO2 emissions.
When it comes to reducing CO2 emissions in the bulk transport of liquids, this is the chance to actually act.
More than 90% of the stainless steel used in conventional tank containers is recycled. Despite this fact, the production of a Tankwell composite tank container has a CO2 footprint that is 2.5 tonnes lower than a conventional stainless steel tank container.
The major advantage of composite tank containers, however, only really becomes clear in the use phase of the life cycle. Optimal use of a Tankwell tank container for road transport leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 15 to 20 tonnes per year compared to a conventional stainless steel tank container.
This equates to what 1000 mature trees would absorb annually!
End of life:
Although recycling of composite materials is still in an early stage of development, there are several potential routes for glass reinforced plastics, for example cement kiln processing and incineration.
As the application of Tankwell lightweight tank containers combines more efficient liquid logistics with a significant reduction of the CO2 footprint, it is time to act and to make your supply chain more efficient and sustainable.
