About PVC: The Environmental Perspective for Health Products
Individuals and industries are aware of the need to act responsibly in protecting the world by applying the principles of sustainable development. This means acting in a way which does not limit the range of economic, social and environmental options available for future generations.
PVC makes the most of valuable resources by using the minimum amount of raw materials and energy during manufacture and processing.
Today, PVC is lighter, stronger and more adaptable than ever before thanks to continuing technological innovation. This means that product for product, proportionally less of the world’s oil and energy resources are being used with lower overall impact on the environment.
The European PVC industry pursues an integrated approach towards product stewardship that contributes to minimising any potential negative environmental impacts associated with each stage of the PVC lifecycle. The industry has undertaken major initiatives in setting tough standards for production and developing improved solutions for the end of life management of its products. The environmental advantages of PVC use in medical devices are:
  • Comparatively low energy and resource use in production and conversion;
  • PVC products are durable;
  • At end of life PVC products may be reprocessable, or can be incinerated, allowing energy recovery; or safely disposed of in landfill.
