Sustainability
The EU definition of sustainability is “by doing what we’re doing now, we don’t damage our future ability to do the same” So one of the most important questions we can ask is – Can we produce PVC indefinitely? The answer is YES. PVC is made of the essential raw materials salt & oil. The earth’s salt stocks are immense and it’s unimaginable that they would ever be depleted. As for oil (a fossil fuel) the ethylene obtained from oil could easily come from ethanol, which can be produced from organic material. In fact in India studies have already shown that PVC can be produced from the fermentation of sugar and ethylene from vegetable oil.

So the future's looking bright for PVC!

Advantages
* PVC-U windows reduce heat loss therefore the building requires less heating so emissions are reduced
* PVC reduces the need to cut down trees
* PVC does not need to be painted, so doesn’t consume materials or generate waste
* PVC-U windows are recycled into window profiles
* PVC is a durable product

WHAT IS PVC?
PVC is a manufactured thermoplastic product, Poly Vinyl Chloride. The windows used at DWC are PVC-U, the U being Uplasticised, which simply means that it contains none of the plasticiser that makes materials such as cling film.

Recycle & Disposal
The recycling of PVC is a relatively straightforward process. The presence of the chlorine molecule is an aid to PVC being identified and separated from other plastics for recycling. In Germany and Austria window profiles are already being recycled.

At DWC all of our PVC-U waste is sent for recycling and is used for various things like PVC garden furniture.
The disposal of used PVC products in landfill is considered by the PVC industry to be a valid component of integrated waste management. Such disposal has always been considered as safe and recently confirmed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. The evidence (given by the British Plastics federation, www.bpl.co.uk), of existing PVC recycling schemes throughout Europe shows that a growing range of end of life PVC products are now being recycled.
