This week on the Construction Record podcast digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Huntsman Building Solutions Mickel Maalouf about environmental product declarations (EPD) and how their use is influencing both current and future building construction.
Maalouf explained how Huntsman’s own spray foam product has its own EPD, which differs from industry EPD standards and is a Type 3 product declaration, which he explained details environmental impact for the product’s entire life cycle.
As technology evolves, Maalouf said, new factors such as machines coming to market that use electricity instead of diesel will mean modification of current EPDs to reflect these new factors.
