Taiwan’s coating specialist TAYA Groups has announced the launch of the world’s first Eco Calculator for large-format banner materials, making it simpler than ever for businesses to evaluate and understand the eco savings of KAVALAN PVC-free banner and textiles. The scientific data is based on the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) process conducted by SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company. SGS conducted LCAs on all the latest KAVALAN products and the LCA data proves categorically that KAVALAN materials provide significant eco savings, with 12 products available for comparison with their PVC banner and textile counterparts on the Kavalan Eco Calculator.
The web-based Eco Calculator uses comparison data from five prevalent environmental impacts—global warming, water consumption, human carcinogens, PM2.5 (polluted particles), and fossil fuel scarcity. Users simply enter the KAVALAN product of their choice, their preferred unit of measurement, and the quantity, and the eco savings result is generated automatically at which point a personalised PDF report and message is sent straight to their inbox. The Eco Calculator is currently accessible to KAVALAN distribution partners.
