The result for the Ecolean production is equal to the core process as described in the EPD. The result include impact from transportation of raw materials to the Ecolean production site, manufacturing of the packaging material, printing and forming the ready-to-fill packages, wound on reels. The reels are covered by plastic wrapping and placed on wooden pallets. The core process also includes waste treatment for production waste and impacts due to the production of electricity and fuels used in the production process. Depending on the market, the production of Ecolean packages (primary packaging) is located in Helsingborg, Sweden, in TEDA, China or in Lahore, Pakistan. When the production of packages takes place in TEDA, China or in Lahore, Pakistan, the carbon footprint includes the transportation of packaging material to the package forming site.
