Within the VinylPlus programme, our partners are collectively committed to greater environmental quality of PVC, aiming to multiply three-fold the recycling volume by 2020.

Full compatibility, consistency, strength and a guarantee of optimal quality are the reasons for selecting a PVC solution in the implementation of a Charmeil construction site in France - a site dedicated to the extension of a wastewater system for a new residential area.

“For this project, which involved creating network connections 2 meters deep before connecting to the existing network - itself located 4 meters deep, the PVC solution was the choice of the public procurer”, explained Raphael Alric, sanitation and water supply products manager from Wavin in France (www.wavin.com).

Le Havre in France also opted for a PVC solution when it decided to expand its tram network. The construction site called for an extension of the existing underground pipe network and Rehau PVC pipes and fittings (www.rehau.com) was a natural choice given its ease of use and resistance.

Do more with less. A simple yet revolutionary concept which lies at the heart of the more recent international policies aimed at promoting a genuine transition to a green economy. For the industry at large, and the PVC industry in particular, it implies a radical change in its modus operandi bringing about a continuous quest for improvements in the way its resources are obtained and transformed.
