Environmental Product Declaration for Cold-Formed Steel Studs and Track


The Steel Recycling Institute released the first industry-wide Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Cold-Formed Steel Studs and Track manufactured in the United States and Canada. The EPD quantifies the “cradle-to-gate” life cycle environmental impacts of these products, and can be used by architects and engineers to document these impacts. The EPD, based on a peer-reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA), can also help designers achieve the credits required for building certification within LEED® and other green building rating programs.

The Importance of the Production Phase in Vehicle Life Cycle GHG Emissions 

A study showing the material production phase accounts for a significant portion of overall vehicle life cycle emissions; therefore, it must be considered as part of any overall regulatory program to reduce vehicle emissions.
