Various 38 aspects are addressed, including handling of tin stabilisers, worker exposure to tin-based heat stabilisers, regulations relating to the use of tin stabilisers in PVC products, such as toys, food packaging, food-contact applications and potable water pipes, product development over the years and life cycle and landfill studies on PVC containing tin stabilisers. 23 refs. 852786 Item 28 PVC 2002: Towards a Sustainable Future. Proceedings of a conference held Brighton, 23rd-25th April 2002.

Some databases for plastics are listed in Table 7. 1 The Boustead Model This tool has the most extensive and specialised database for plastics, and is therefore described in some detail here. The database, into which the user feeds data that are relevant to the product-system under review, stores data on items such as fuels and energy use, raw material requirements, as well as solid, liquid and gaseous emissions. Input of data is carried out by stages, with conversion to a common base such as SI units and normalisation to a suitable datum-line such as ‘per kilogram of material’ or ‘per thousand units of product’.

This was aimed at providing a systematic comparison and overview of current LCA studies that have examined major PVC end-use products, such as pipes, window frames, floor coverings, cables and roofing materials. This project made extensive use of the APME eco-profile data on PVC and demonstrated the value of these data in establishing the product-sustainability credentials of PVC in such applications.
