CFL Completes Life Cycle Assessment for Rigid Core Products
Shanghai, China, September 30, 2022-CFL Flooring has conducted its first Life Cycle Assessment for all its rigid core products produced in their headquarter facility.
Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is a process of evaluating the effects that a product has on the environment over the entire period of its life, thereby increasing resource-use efficiency and decreasing liabilities. LCA will help CFL identify key areas for potential improvement such as:
* Selecting materials that have lower GHG emissions and that do not contribute to resource scarcity, for example abundant, recycled or renewable.
* Promoting optimized use of resources in production, reducing the use of energy and water, and waste generation.
* Creating new sustainable technologies that allow the company to reduce the use of materials or improve its transportation-related GHG emissions, for example, its Be-Lite technology or the new digital printing product line coming in 2023.
Generating LCA data further enables CFL Flooring to also develop Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs)-transparent and objective reports that communicate how a product impacts the environment across its entire lifecycle.
