With the growth of a sustainable supply chain, the industries focus on greening their logistics activities while meeting their customers’ requirements. Sustainable logistics includes not only reducing the cost but also reducing environmental impact. It includes several factors, including measuring the environmental impact of distribution and collection strategies, energy reduction in logistical activities, and minimizing waste outputs. If you want your business to contribute towards environmental protection, opting for flexitanks for storing and transporting the product is best. It will help in controlling environmental impacts like global warming.
Understanding the Meaning of Carbon Footprint
A carbon footprint measures ozone depletion substances, especially carbon dioxide, delivered to the air through specific human interaction. A carbon footprint is a measurement applied to the activities of an individual, a family, an occasion, an organization air, and even an entire country. Experts define carbon footprint as loads of carbon dioxide transmitted each year. It is a number supplemented by loads of carbon dioxide equivalent gases.
Calculating Carbon Footprint
Calculating a carbon footprint considers numerous aspects. It includes energy used during the production of an object or component, the material used in creating the energy, and the material used in creating the object. It also includes the chemical structure of the object and the way it reacts to environmental exposure. Every chemical producing greenhouse gases displays the amount of carbon footprint created by the organization.
What is A Flexitank?
Flexitanks are the latest iteration in the development of bulk liquid storage. These are hermetically sealed, collapsible and flexible bags or bladders meant primarily for storing and transporting non-hazardous liquids. It is a mass fluid storage compartment with walls comprising various layers of polyethylene.
The internal walls comprise adaptable polyethylene, while the external walls comprise a more grounded and joined material called polypropylene. Since the mass of a flexitank is flexible, it requires an outside design to help it when you fill it with fluid. The flexitanks offer better security in contrast to modern delivery haulers.
Reducing Carbon Footprints with Flexitanks
Flexitanks offer a sustainable solution to bulk liquid shipping in contrast to alternative transportation methods, such as IBC totes and drums. With flexitanks, organizations can lower their carbon footprint by over 40% compared to the substitute methods of shipping bulk liquid cargo. Flexitanks are greener alternatives to ISO Tanks, as the former is a 20 feet shipping container and weighs lower than the latter. The low weight-to-content ratio reduces emissions and energy consumption for transporting liquid cargo.
Moreover, flexitanks do not require special care. Therefore, these are excellent for reducing an organization’s carbon footprint as they have a minimal effect on the environment in terms of energy required throughout their lifecycle. These eliminate conventional longitudinal seams with one-piece construction, thus reducing energy requirements during production.
Why Choose Fluid Flexitanks?
Fluid Flexitanks manufactures premium quality flexitanks suitable for storing and transporting food-grade items and other non-hazardous liquids. We manufacture flexitanks by adhering to all the set standards proposed by the government to reduce the organization’s carbon footprint.
