Environmental Product Declarations (EPD): The sustainable benefit

In accordance with ISO 14025 and EN15804+ A2, Sikla recently achieved Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for the siFramo modular secondary steel system and Simotec pipe shoes. This is in line with the increasing demand for information on the potential environmental impacts, such as climate change, products have.

What is a Environmental Product Declaration?

An EPD is a third party verification that contains information on the environmental impact of a product or building material during its lifetime. The declaration is based on relevant standards and fact-based information for evaluating the product’s sustainability and comparison of CO2 consumption.

Each Environmental Product Declaration takes a assessment of the five stages of a product’s life:

  • Manufacturing
  • Erection
  • Use
  • Disposal
  • Recycling

These stages take into consideration the products life cycle from a raw material to its disposal in addition to packaging and transport.

For the siFramo modular secondary steel system and Simotec pipe shoes EPD’s, the disposal stage was examined in further detail based on two scenarios. Both product systems can be reused and recycled meaning after disassembly, both products can be transported to a new location and reused. The reject rate is approximately 10% for the beam profile and this must be considered for the new application.
