Sustainability: Carbon Balance Study

Sustainability: Carbon Balance Study

A recent study commissioned by the Global Silicones Council assessed the full life cycle of silicones, siloxanes, and silanes in Europe, North America and Japan. The first of its kind, this study took a cradle-to-grave perspective, examining the production, use, and waste phases of silicones.

The study found that the use of products containing silicone materials can help save, on average, nine times the amount of greenhouse gases required to manufacture them.

This study provided consumers, manufacturers, retailers and policymakers with reliable data to implement effective sustainability and energy efficiency measures and decisions.
