Environmental Product Declaration – EPD
An EPD provides information about the use of energy and resources and the extent to which a product contributes to the greenhouse effect, acidification, over-fertilisation, destruction of the ozone layer and smog formation. It also gives details about technical properties which are required for the assessment of the performance of the product in a building, such as service life, heat and noise insulation, or its influence on the quality of the air inside the building. Together with WETEC (the Wet-felt Technical Committee), Odenwald Faserplattenwerk GmbH supports sustainable building by means of Environmental Product Declarations at the Building and Environment Institute [Institut Bauen und Umwelt e. V], as we also see it as our role to provide information about the origin of the raw materials, production and treatment processes and energy consumption, and to be aware of the effects on the environment so that these can be minimised in a continuous improvement process. The EPD which has been produced already complies with the Europe-wide harmonised EN 15804.
