EPD - Environmental Product Declaration

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life cycle environmental impact of products. It is created by the manufacturer, peer reviewed by independent bodies on the basis of ISO 14025 and EN 15804 standards, and published by an environmental labelling organisation. Thus, EPD's are suitable as proof of environmental requirements in public procurement processes.

In order to develop this document, ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling analysed the full production process and performed a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of its steel sheet piles.

ArcelorMittal produces hot rolled steel sheet piles in its European plants of Belval and Differdange in Luxembourg, as well as Dabrowa in Poland. These sheet piles are covered by an EPD registered by German institute Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU), in accordance with ISO and European standards, and accepted by the ECO PLATFORM.

ArcelorMittal was the first steel manufacturer to publish in 2011 an EPD dedicated to steel sheet piles. In the meantime, new European standards were released (EN 15804), and two new EPD's were published:
  • 'Hot rolled steel sheet piles' in 2016, covering the three mills,
  • 'EcoSheetPiles' in 2018, covering the two mills located in Luxembourg, producing steel in an EAF (Electric Arc Furnace).
