Description

Disclaimer: The LCI and LCIA results of this dataset can vary from the published Eco-profile on PlasticsEurope website due to the conversion of the original LCI to an ILCD compliant LCI, and some updates of characterization factors used in the Eco-profile since the time of the publication. This was done in agreement with PlasticsEurope. null

Technology

The LCI data in this Eco-profile represent the average applied technology for the production of PTA in Europe. They are based on confidential data collected from PTA production sites. Thus, primary data were used for all foreground processes (under operational control) as well as for the provision of on-site energy, if applicable. These input data are complemented with secondary data from background processes, e.g. grid electricity supply and the raw material pre-chain. PTA imported to Europe is not considered in this Eco-profile.
