Glenroy Publishes Life Cycle Assessment Glenroy, Inc., Annapolis, Maryland, recently pub- lished its Life Cycle Assessment of STANDCAP vs. Rig- id Plastics Report . Glenroy contracted Shelbyville, Michigan-based firm PTIS, LLC to provide life cycle assessments (LCAs) and a report with descriptions on key environmental indicators based on comparing the premade STANDCAP Pouch to a rigid package equiv- alent across a range of product categories including sauces, condiments, and personal care.The purpose of the LCAs is to use the results as an educational tool and better understand the environmental impacts of the different package options. To help summarize the key findings of each LCA case study, the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) part- nered with Glenroy to produce fact sheets in keeping with previous and future LCA case studies that FPA has done with PTIS.According to the study, choosing pre- made STANDCAP Pouches instead of rigid plastic bot- tles (including rigid inverted plastic squeeze bottles) results in up to: 63 percent less plastic (by weight); 61 percent less fossil fuel consumption; 62 percent less greenhouse gas emissions;76 percent less water usage; and 52 percent less landfill waste (even when factor- ing in plastic recycling rates).
