Hexagon Ragasco, the world’s leading manufacturer of composite LPG cylinders, awarded new Environmental Product Declaration
Hexagon Ragasco, a Hexagon company and world leading manufacturer of LPG composite cylinders – was awarded a new Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) from EPD-Norway covering the entire lifetime of their cylinders from cradle to grave.
Hexagon Ragasco’s cylinders are produced at the company’s fully automated manufacturing plant in Raufoss, Norway. During the past 22 years, Hexagon Ragasco has sold over 20 million cylinders to close to 100 countries.
Value of an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
An EPD discloses a product’s life cycle environmental impact and helps users to identify sustainable products. Both the underlying Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the EPD are based upon international standards. Furthermore, it contains quantified information that enables comparison between products from the same product category and declares its environmental footprint towards predetermined environmental factors; one being the product’s carbon footprint.
Hexagon Ragasco’s first EPD covered the product stage, from cradle-to-gate, and is valid for all our markets / customers in their markets.*
The new EPD covers the entire product’s lifetime from cradle-to-grave: product, use and end-of-life stages. The data was gathered in cooperation with Linde Gas AS, Norway’s largest Marketer of bottled LPG. The new EPD has a baseline of two cylinder fillings per year and a 30-year product lifetime.
Setting a new industry standard
“Our focus is on reducing our carbon footprint and on delivering transparent and science-based information that can also help our customers reduce their own carbon footprint.” says Margrethe Skattum, Head of Research & Sustainability, Hexagon Ragasco. “We continue leading the way among composite LPG cylinder manufacturers in terms of transparency in sustainability reporting. Our work with LCA is part of our business strategy and is in line with the EU Taxonomy”.
EPD Certification process
Asplan Viak, a leading Norwegian consultancy company specialized in a.o. environmental impact analysis and sustainability, guided Hexagon Ragasco through this and the previous EPD certification process** for the entire cylinder lifetime which included: Extraction and production of raw materials, transport of raw materials to the manufacturing plant, manufacturing of cylinders and transport of finished cylinders to the port of Oslo, Norway; preparation and distribution of packaging in use, retesting and maintenance of cylinders, end-of-life stage.
