Iron has a lesser effect in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions compared to aluminium and PVC taking into setup consideration, life cycle, embodied energy, embodied CO2, repair and maintenance cost and whole life price. Iron is 100% recyclable at the end of its long life and utilises metal from almost 100% scrap and the production process.
Cast iron is a Greenpeace recommended drainage material and is the best option for reducing the environmental impact of a job. The unrivalled life period together with low maintenance requirements makes a cast iron system cost effective in comparison to other materials. It may also offer cost savings when flame proofing, sound material, expansion joints support brackets or special bedding requirements are necessary for products to meet regulations.
