Single-Use Technology >> Glossary >> E >> Ecobalance


includes the whole life cycle of a defined system from the raw material with its extraction and processing, the manufacture and use, up to disposal or recycling. Studies covering the ecobalance of antibody productions show a higher environmental sustainability for plants using single-use systems compared to reusable stainless-steel production plants. Using single-use systems causes reduced water (87 %) and energy consumption (30 %) and less CO2 (25 %) emission 29, 57, 58. See CO2-footprint and LCA.
