NRMCA Producer Member Certifies EPD for Two Products in Panama

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Argos has certified an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for two products it manufacture at its plants in Miraflores, Panama. This is the fifth EPD Argos has published, making it one of the leaders in publishing EPDs. 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; this is the first EPD NRMCA has certified from outside the U.S.

Argos 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. Climate Earth 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.
