New sustainable plumbing pipe from REHAU provides more than 90% CO2 savings from manufacturing process

Polymer pipework manufacturer REHAU has unveiled its sustainable universal pipe system, RAUTITAN flex green, which offers over a 90% saving in production emissions compared to their regular model. Providing the same benefits as the popular drinking water and heating system, RAUTITAN, the new RAUTITAN flex green pipe is a bio-based polymer and a great alternative for customers who are turning to sustainable options.

RAUTITAN flex green is part of REHAU’s vision for next level building and visitors to the Installer Show 2024 will be able to view the product first hand as part of REHAU’s full range of plumbing and heating solutions, for domestic and commercial heating, heat pumps and district heating.

RAUTITAN flex green uses industry waste such as vegetable fats or alternative by-products as a renewable feedstock, replacing fossil fuels on a proportional basis. This is proven through its ISCC certification, which is a programme for the circular economy to establish sustainable raw material chains and verify these based on the mass balance approach. Not only does this allow a reduction in fossil fuels, but also significantly helps to decrease the carbon footprint of the pipe.

Reliability is still achieved through a permanently leak-tight connection with fittings and compression sleeves, with the pipe itself being the sealant and no O-rings required. Over 1 billion joints worldwide have been made using this Everloc™ compression sleeve technology and a simple visual inspection can be carried out to check that the joint is complete which speeds up installation times. Its hygienically optimised inner pipe walls and excellent impermeability of the cavity-free jointing technology ensure that it’s just as clean.

The new pipes are a great way for customers to demonstrate compliance with ecological, social and economic requirements for the lifecycle of a building that is required through building certifications, such as BREEAM. REHAU can help with this process by providing the necessary information in the corresponding Environmental Product Declaration.
