Environmental Product Declaration
Our first published Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
An EPD discloses a product’s life cycle environmental impact and helps users to identify sustainable products. Both the underlying Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the EPD are based upon international standards. Furthermore, it contains quantified information that enables comparison between products from the same product category and declares its environmental footprint towards predetermined environmental factors; one being the product’s carbon footprint. Our company is certified by EPD-Norway.
Our first EPD relates to the production phase of the LCA. In addition to the production phase, the use phase and end-of-life phase will also be analyzed in the future.
EPD Certification process
Asplan Viak, a leading Norwegian consultancy company specialized in a.o. environmental impact analysis and sustainability, guided us through this EPD certification process for the production phase, which included:
- Production and transportation of raw materials to the manufacturing plant in Norway
- The production of composite cylinders at our manufacturing plant
- Transportation of finished composite cylinders from the manufacturing plant to the port of Oslo, Norway
