EPD (Environmental Product Declaration)
An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is an
environmental product declaration that documents the life cycle
environmental impact of a product.
All material manufacturers are experiencing increasing demands to
present documentation of the environmental impacts of their
products, and as the world's first supplier of textile based
ventilation, KE Fibertec is now ready to offer an EPD for textile
In order to get an independent and objective evaluation we
commissioned the company 2.-0 LCA consultants to be in charge of
the analysis, and it was performed according to ISO 14044 and the
directions herein. The report is based on a textile duct of 10
metres, Ø 500 mm diameter and with an air volume of 5,000
An EPD is a summary of an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), which is
documented in a more comprehensive report. The report is an
in depth documentation of the life-cycle environmental impact of a
textile duct, e.g. CO2 emission (global warming), depletion of the
ozone layer, release of hazardous waste etc.
An LCA enables us to compare textile ducts with the environmental
profiles of other products, and at the same time it will be a tool
to prioritize our optimization strategy as to which negative
environmental impacts you wish to minimize.
