Flexible tanks require a minimal amount of materials to build. Moreover, their extremely low weight reduces emissions and energy consumption for transporting and handling. Both these factors contribute to flexitanks low CO2 footprint, which means they have a minimal effect on the environment in terms of energy required throughout their life cycle. A Flexible tank has reached the end of its useful life, it makes an excellent candidate for both upcycling for the manufacturing of second life products, as well as recycling as a resource for plastic. In this way the waste is minimized, further contributing to flexitank’s environmental sustainability.
