Taiwan-based Taya Groups, a worldwide producer and exporter of PVC-coated materials and products for indoor and outdoor applications, has officially launched 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 its Kavalan PVC-free banners and textiles.” The scientific data is based on the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) process conducted by SGS, a world-leading testing, inspection and certification company. SGS conducted LCAs on all the latest Kavalan products. The data proves 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, and the personalized report is available in seven languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Romanian, Italian, and Japanese. The new calculator makes it easy for businesses to meet their sustainable goals, and to see just how significant the eco savings are compared with PVC banners and textiles.
