New Carbon Footprint Study Released

Eden Nuclear and Environment, Ltd., and Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM Enviros) , two world leaders in environmental protection and life cycle carbon assessment studies recently completed an extensive carbon footprint analysis of the OREX technology as compared to alternative approaches. This assessment has considered the full life cycle of the garments from production and distribution, processing (including, in the case of textiles, laundering after each use), transportation and ultimately waste disposal needs.  This report supports the move away from launderable garments by considering the environmental sustainability (in terms of the life cycle carbon footprint) of protective garment use in the US nuclear industry by comparing specialized single use OREX garments against the historical approach of use of launderable textiles. Read the report.
