Environmental product declaration

Environmental product declaration for hot rolled steel sheet piling products | 2016

The EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) for hot rolled steel sheet piling products, produced by ArcelorMittal, is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impacts of these products.

This environmental product declaration concerns steel sheet piling products produced by the three ArcelorMittal plants: Dabrowa (Poland), Belval and Differdange (Luxemburg). It is based on 2015 annual production, and in the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, performed through a cradle-to-gate analysis, determining the different steps of steel making process and end of life scenarios.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Developed in the 1990's, the Life Cycle Assessment is a methodology aimed at assessing the environmental consequences of human actions, particularly the production of goods. It has become an important tool to the steel industry as a way to assess and quantify the potential environmental footprint of steel products along their entire life cycle, from creation in a steel plant, to scrap in a steel plant scrap yard.

The LCA provides environmental information, based on ISO standards, on the whole, the life cycle of a product or service, from cradle to grave, as well as a wide range of environmental impacts, from local to a global level.
