PIQET staring in the Food Technology Magazine
PIQET is Lifecycles’ own streamlined Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool designed to assess the environmental impacts and resource consumption profiles of different packaging options.
It’s designed to be intuitive and easy to use and a complete assessment can be undertaken in less than 30 minutes.
The Food Technology Magazine published an article on “Life Cycle Assessments Guide Sustainability” with a focus on packaging and trialled PIQET in the process.
The article reads …”Material sourcing and recovery differences can be captured in PIQET because sourcing (bioderived, fossil-derived, and/or recycled content) and recovery (recycling, composting, landfills, etc.) can be differentiated in the tool according to regional defaults or specific user input. Recently added to PIQET was the ability to account for how a package protects its contents by assessing both the impact of making a product that is lost in the supply chain and the impact of disposing lost product. This captures the impact of food as well as that of package waste. The reuse, recycled content, and recovery are all assessed in PIQET in a material circularity index, which is based on the approach developed by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.”…
