In 2012, an investment of more than € 3 million was made by SOTRA SEPEREF for the acquisition of a second production line of bi-oriented PVC pipes. Used for the distribution of drinking water, bi-oriented PVC pipes are the greenest solution available on the market thanks to a continuous process of bi- orientation, a manufacturing process that only few companies in the world have mastered.

PVC Pipes are low on CO2 Emissions - Malaysia Conference Told
U.S. President Obama and the EU are set to forge a new deal to cut greenhouse gases at the end of March in Brussels. Whatever the outcome, technical experts from PVC4Pipes are confident that their pipe systems will more than meet the most stringent present and future requirements in the field of CO2 emissions. At the recent eighth World Chlor-Alkali & Vinyls Conference in Malaysia, Zoran Davidovski from PVC4Pipes informed participants that these emissions have been closely measured and assessed for all major PVC pipe applications.
PVC4pipes Website Homes in on Wider Public
All pipe systems are usually kept out of sight for practical and aesthetic reasons, and thus often invisible. But not forgotten since PVC4pipes have now transformed their website to target the eyes and minds of the people who really matter when it comes to buying and relying on PVC pipe systems. It marks a significant start of an outreach programme to encourage a dialogue with architects, designers, specifiers, constructors, users and many other industry and public stakeholders.

And the Winner is....Floridienne Chimie
Floridienne Chimie, a member of PVC4Pipes was recently awarded the First Prize by the Belgian Business Awards for the Environment for their development of new ‘green’ stabilisers for PVC. Read more about Floridienne.
The British Plastics Federation (BPF) Vinyls Group has launched a new pocket sized leaflet providing 12 good reasons why PVC is hard to beat as a resource and cost-efficient material.
Many studies have confirmed the significant benefits of PVC and these are handily summarised in this concise document. The leaflet provides supporting data which companies can use for internal briefings and to give to their customers.
The aim of the leaflet is to encourage a large group of “PVC ambassadors” who can have ready access to the key facts about PVC in their top pockets whether it be in their professional or social lives.

Long-Term Behaviour and Curves That Defy Aging…
The long-term behaviour of PVC-pipes is more long-term than originally thought. Testing PVC pipes by assessing the burst pressure curve of each composition material is a rigorous process carried out by an accredited organization. Participants at the recent ‘Pipes VII’ conference organised by the Southern African Plastics Pipe Manufacturers Association (SAPPMA) in Johannesburg were informed that this increased life expectancy will provide enhanced value and benefits for operators of sewer and water networks.
