PVC Pipelife in Netherlands with 3 pipe-lives for more sustainable future

Pipelife Netherlands has signed an agreement with Alliander, one of three Dutch gas network operators, to provide three colour-coded generations of piping. It starts with yellow PVC-HI low-pressure gas pipe, then removed, shredded and micronised for a second life as red PVC cable protection pipe. The third life is a foamed middle layer in sewage pipes. Total lifespan: 150 years or more.
