Reducing VSL's Carbon Footprint
Low carbon: unveiling two new Environmental Product Declarations 🍃
In an era where environmental consciousness takes center stage, VSL International is proud to the release of two meticulously crafted Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). These declarations not only set new standards within the post-tensioning industry but also reinforce our commitment to environmental responsibility.

🎥 Bearing Replacement: a critical maintenance operation that requires specialized techniques 🍃
As the design life of a bearing is lower than that of the overall structure, the replacement of bearings should be considered as a regular maintenance operation for bridges.

How to tackle PT Tendon inspection & maintenance ? 🍃
Inspection and maintenance of post-tensioned tendons should be considered regular interventions for bridges and should always be carried out by a post-tensioning specialist that has an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the system.

🎥 VSL’s low-carbon grout: what is it? 🍃
The durability of post-tensioned structures is provided by the cement grout, which protects the steel strands from corrosion. The grout fabrication is emitting about 1 tonne of C02 for 1 tonne of cement. To reduce this carbon footprint, VSL International has developed a process to fabricate low-carbon grout.🌎
Maintenance in a bridge construction project
🎥 Why consider maintenance operations from design stage ?🍃
In a bridge construction project, the carbon is mostly contained into the material. So, if we can prevent our existing structures from demolition or rebuild, and instead, properly maintain and inspect them to extend their service life, then we can achieve the lowest carbon bridge.
HVO fuel: a low-carbon alternative
Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil: a reduction of nearly 98% of CO2 emissions on the HS2 project, UK 🍃
Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is a bio-based liquid fuel originating from various kinds of vegetable oils such as rapeseed, sunflower, soybean and palm oil, waste oils as well as animal fats. It is seen as a greener diesel and can totally replace or be mixed with diesel. VSL used it and experienced it on the HS2 project, in the UK,...
