BPI asked us to undertake a Life Cycle
Assessment (LCA) of the manufacture and disposal of
LLDPE agricultural silage plastic.
This study involved the detailed analysis of the
complete life of the silage film from raw material
manufacture to disposal. In doing this, two LCAs
- Manufacture, collection and recycling of
agricultural silage film
- Manufacture and disposal of silage film by
farmers at landfill sites
The main activities contributing to the environmental
impact of the film were identified so that they could
be investigated further and the impacts reduced.
