    Sustainability evaluation of plastic vs stainless steel intermediate bulk containers (ibc)

    The transition towards a circular economy, where the value of products, materials and resources is maintained for as long as possible, is an essential to nurturing a sustainable society. The re-use of packaging items and materials is essential to achieving this goal. 

    This is the case across industries. Many factors are taken into consideration when selecting the material of an IBC (price, compatibility, etc.). Now, the environmental impact of an IBC throughout its life cycle is becoming of particular concern, changing the way these decisions are approached. 

    In this whitepaper, the environmental performance of a stainless steel IBC and a composite IBC has been assessed by means of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This provides a scientifically sound quantification of the environmental impact throughout the product’s life cycle.
