GREENMANTRA Technologies announces publication of the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the Ceranovus® product line, enabling customers to show environmental impact reductions of products.
SCS Global Services (SCS) has published the EPD for the Ceranovus® product line, which is a line of specialty waxes that includes both polyethylene and polypropylene polymer additives. These additives enhance processing and performance for a wide range of products, including injection molded products and asphalt products such as roofing and roadways. The EPD outlines the environmental impacts of the products, and more importantly, allows customers to realize GHG reduction opportunities when they select Ceranovus.
Made from 100% recycled inputs, customers can compare the impacts of the GREENMANTRA product with alternative, non-recycled products offered on the market today. Carbon reduction is increasingly a mandate in both the public and private sectors, and achieving those carbon reduction goals is driving procurement decisions. This is particularly true for industries such as the asphalt paving industry.
“We committed to the process of publishing the Ceranovus EPD to not only help our customers better meet industry transparency requirements, but also pursued this because we believe it will help our customers gain a competitive edge in positioning their products,” notes Domenic Di Mondo, President of GREENMANTRA Technologies. “Recycled inputs inherently offer environmental impact reductions, and I think the industry will see that come through in the EPD.”
The EPD outlines product impacts in the areas of raw material inputs, energy and water consumption, waste generation and emissions. Published by SCS Global Services, the data in the EPD is third-party verified.
“GREENMANTRA’s EPD is an important step towards efforts in their supply chain and the green building industry," said Keith Killpack, SCS’ Technical Director of Environmental Certification Services. “EPDs are the most robust multi-attribute transparent report that communicates what a product is made of and how it impacts the environment, and SCS commends GREENMANTRA for this high level of transparency.”
