We are delighted to announce that a new EPD has been published under our programme EPD Ireland: EPDIE-20-22 for IMS Greenstone Recycled Aggregates.
The EPD covers 3 recycled aggregate types:
- Class 6F2
- Clause 503
- Clause 803
The constituent raw materials comprise recycled concrete construction demolition waste. Aggregate is manufactured in accordance with I.S. EN 13242:2002 + A1, 2007, Aggregates for unbound and hydraulically bound materials for use in civil engineering work and road construction.
The recycled aggregates can be used in road and civil engineering projects as an alternative to virgin aggregates and, according to the Lif
e Cycle Assessment, Greenstone aggregates have been certified to have a carbon footprint of only 5% of virgin ones.
Together with Ecocel Cellulose Fibre Insulation, this is the first EPD for a product from recycled content under the programme and it’s also the first in the country for aggregates.
This EPD has also been registered on ECO Platform, the organisation of the European EPD programme operators’ website. In this way is now visible to specifiers across Europe.
