Epishine, an energy impact company, has announced a breakthrough in the sustainability aspects of its technology. Epishine’s patented production process has achieved a low carbon footprint of 0,86 g CO2eq/cm2.
As a company their mission is to be at the forefront of printed organic solar cells and, in a series of phases, to offer the world’s most scalable, resource-efficient and affordable solar cell. This breakthrough positions Epishine as a frontrunner in environmentally conscious technology, with significantly less CO2 emission than the batteries that has previously powered the same devices.
Life Cycle Assessment
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool used in quantifying the environmental impact of products from beginning to end-of-life. LCA covers every stage of a product’s life cycle, including raw material extraction, production, distribution, use, and disposal. The purpose of LCA is to provide a basis for describing environmental impact that supports change and identifies measures within the analysed life cycle that can contribute to more sustainable development. By achieving a low-carbon footprint, Epishine is setting a new standard for sustainability in their field.
Epishine develop sustainability of their technology
Epishine’s commitment to minimizing environmental impact through the development of their technology has paved the way for this achievement. By leveraging the latest advancements in solar cell technology and manufacturing processes, Epishine has optimised its production methods, resulting in a significant reduction in energy consumption, waste generation, and greenhouse gas emissions throughout the product life cycle. The LCA report, conducted by the Swedish environmental consultancy company Miljögiraff and third-party reviewed by Sweco, validates these improvements.
Annie Johansson, Life Cycle Analyst at Miljögiraff said. “They have incorporated the results of our LCA into their roadmap and immediately iterated to reduce the environmental impact of their product. We look forward to continuing to provide Epishine with environmental calculations to aid their journey towards driving sustainable change.”
The LCA performance of Epishine’s products positions customers for enhanced sustainability reporting and compliance with increasingly stringent regulations, meeting the growing demands from end customers for sustainable IOT products.
Jonas Bergqvist, CTO at Epishine said. “Sustainability has always been our top priority in developing our patented production method. This is reflected in our continuous choices in the development of our production process such as avoiding high temperatures and excluding certain materials. This milestone demonstrates our unwavering dedication to creating sustainable energy solutions that minimise our ecological footprint. While today’s results mark a gratifying achievement, we remain committed to further improving our products’ environmental performance.”
