Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Argos Ready Mix has certified an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for 342 products it manufactures at its plants in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. This is the fourth EPD Argos has published, making it one of the leaders in this area. Developing and certifying an EPD requires a rigorous process of conducting a life cycle assessment (LCA) of plant operations and product formulation followed by an extensive review by independent LCA professionals using a standard called a Product Category Rule (PCR). Argos chose the NRMCA EPD Program to certify its EPD. It followed the Product Category Rule for Concrete developed by the Carbon Leadership Forum and relevant international standards. PRé Consultants conducted the LCA and developed the EPD for Argos. Athena Sustainable Materials Institute verified the EPD. As is required by the standards, the EPD is published on NRMCA’s Web site

The concrete industry leads the way with the number of products with EPDs with nearly 2,000 products certified. For more information about EPDs and the NRMCA EPD program, visit or contact Lionel Lemay of NRMCA at or 847-918-7101.
