Following the life cycle of pipes: Tenaris releases Environmental Product Declarations
Global manufacturer of steel pipes and related services Tenaris has published a number of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) stating the environmental performance of its main products based on their Life Cycle Assessment. The EPDs measure the impact of steel pipe on air emissions, energy use, climate change, the recovery of co-products and water use.
Tenaris issued its first EPD in 2015 for the Dalmine mill in Italy to measure the environmental impact of one ton of pipe from a lifecycle perspective. This was the first time a certified EPD had been issued in the International EPD System for steel pipes specifically designed for the oil & gas industry. Another milestone – first of its kind in the industry – was reached in 2017, when the EPD was issued for seamless OCTG pipes.
‘EPDs represent an important achievement, which confirm Tenaris’s commitment not only to minimizing the environmental impact of its operations through the adoption of the best available technologies, but also to promote long-term sustainability of its business and to disclose its environmental performance,’ said Carolina Bengochea, Tenaris Environment Senior Director.
