Print this Article | Send to Colleague

As a leading Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) Program Operator for the concrete industry, NRMCA recently published an EPD for Producer member CalPortland Company. The EPD reports environmental information for Type I/II/V cement produced at its Mojave, CA, facility. Type I/II/V cement is for use when [1] the special properties specified for any other type are not required; [2] for general use especially when moderate sulfate resistance or heat of hydration is desired and [3] for use when high sulfate resistance is desired.

The life-cycle assessment (LCA) report and EPD was developed by Athena Sustainable Materials Institute and verified by Sustainable Solutions Corporation. To date, CalPortland has five EPDs for cement and ready mixed concrete products.

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.
