Life Cycle Assessment – Launderables vs Disposables

UniTech’s reusable garments had remarkably less impact in all categories measured, with the most significant (five-fold or more) differences being in global warming potential, smog and primary energy demand.

Comparative LCA of Protective Garments

UniTech Services Group commissioned PE International, a global leader in sustainability performance solutions, to conduct an independent comparison of the environmental performance of UniTech’s reusable protective clothing set with a disposable garment set. The study compared the cradle-to-grave impacts of two garment sets used for low level radioactive particulate contamination protection and contamination control. It measured specific areas of impact including global warming potential, acidification smog formation, ozone depletion, and other potential areas of impact.
