The new product launch will save energy, primarily because it eliminates the energy required to produce virgin glass fiber. For example, the energy footprint from Ucomposites’ processing will be 60 kWh/ton, whereas the manufacturing of virgin glass fiber requires about 8056 kWh/ton. This gives a reduction of about 99 %. Further, a life cycle assessment of Ucomposites’ production process made in 2016 showed a greenhouse gas emission (CO2 equiv.) of 0,060 ton per ton upcycled glass fiber. This value should be compared with the average emission of 1,90 ton CO2 equiv. per ton virgin glass fiber, corresponding to a 97 % reduction. The European Union is aiming for a 20 % cut in its annual primary energy consumption and in the overall greenhouse gas emissions in 2020, so this upcycling process offers a substantial method to achieve this goal.
