Share this post

About the Project

The client is the largest producer of aluminum extrusion products in Malaysia with an extrusion capacity of 40,000 MT per annum.   

The company commissioned ESC to perform a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in accordance with ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards to identify the potential environmental impact of their aluminum products. Additionally, ESC supported the elaboration and verification of the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to provide transparent and comparable information about their products.

Our Approach

ESC conducted the LCA study and examined the manufacturing processes that have the greatest environmental impact and in indicating the options for improvement in order to maximise the positive effects and reduce the negative effects on the environment to a minimum.  

ESC developed the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) partnership with an external reviewer which consists of studies of full inventory analysis, potential environmental impacts (includes a component of biodiversity). 

Outcome

ESC was able to provide a cost-effective purpose fit solution for the client. Through LCA and EPD, the client was able to compare the impacts of different materials and products and selected the most sustainable option. Additionally, it benefits the client to communicate the environmental performance of their product and demonstrate its legal and regulatory compliance.

Client Testimonials

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
