NRMCA Certifies CalPortland EPD
As a leading Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) Program Operator for the concrete industry, NRMCA recently published an EPD for the CalPortland Company. The EPD reports environmental information for Type IL blended hydraulic cement produced by CalPortland at its Oro Grande, CA, facility. Type IL is general-use cement which includes a ground limestone content that is higher than a typical Type I cement. The life-cycle assessment (LCA) report and EPD was developed by Athena Sustainable Materials Institute and verified by Sustainable Solutions Corporation. To date, the ready mixed concrete industry, including material suppliers, have 21 verified EPDs with a total of 7,869 products, by far the largest total of any building product category.
As part of the Build with Strength campaign, NRMCA promotes Strength Through Transparency for member and industry competitiveness in the green building marketplace and the trends toward product and company transparency.
