That Drum International is currently engaged with EY to produce CO2e comparatives for its drums, based on the reuse program, each cycle of reuse will decrease the CO2e factor by a divisional ratio. The use of reconditioned drums will increase the CO2e factor on an additional basis. The results of the That Drum survey will be used to demonstrate the unmatched benefits to Reuse vs Reconditioning.
- A report commissioned by RIPA in 2014/15, conducted by Ernst & Young (EY), comparing “carbon footprints” (expressed as CO2 equivalents) for reconditioned vs. new packaging solutions.
- Table 1. Are the analysed Carbon footprint results for steel Drums.
- The report name: “Life Cycles Assessment of Newly Manufactured & Reconditioned industrial Packaging” – REVISED VERSION October 2015.
- The report does not include the benefits of uncoated galvanized reusable drums which would significantly lower CO2e.
