Elite Cementos, a company specializing in cement production, has registered two Environmental Product Declarations verified with the DAPcons® seal, within the Porgram Operator DAPconstrucción®.
These DAPs include two products. On the one hand, DAPcons® 100.001 referring to Portland cement with a strength class of 52.5 MPa and, on the other hand, DAPcons® 100.002 on a CEM II product, which includes different Portland cement families. In the latter case, the variability of the results of the Life Cycle Inventory (EICV) evaluation does not, in any case, exceed 10%. Both products are produced at the Elite Cementos Plant, located in the South Dock of the Port of Castellón.
The company ReMa Ingeniería SL, a member affiliated with the Program Operator DAPconstrucción® Program, has been responsible for preparing the ACV Life Cycle Analysis, subsequently verified by ITeC. Both DAPcons® are valid until December 2022 and are based on the RCP 100 Product Category Rules for general construction products.
In this case, this is a stroke from door to door, meaning that the environmental impacts generated during the production phase of the product are analyzed and leaving out the stages of construction, use and end of life.
The Program Operator DAPconstrucción was created in 2008 and specializes in construction products with the aim of bringing together manufacturers who want to advance in the analysis of the environmental impacts of their products and commit themselves to environmental improvement.
