Beaulieu Technical Textiles, a globally represented and established manufacturer of woven technical fabrics, introduces product specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), an essential tool for communicating sustainability performance to fully support green-certified construction projects by providing accurate information in readily available formats.
EPDs on geosynthetics bring more transparency and help carbon-conscious purchasing and decision making. An EPD shows a manufacturer’s commitment to measure and reduce the environmental impact of its products and report these impacts in a very transparent way.
Construction products, like geotextiles, follow the very comprehensive European standard, EN 15804+A2. The third-party verification and approval by the international EPD® System officially demonstrates the low environmental impact of BTT’s geotextile products. All BTT’s woven geotextiles have very low CO2 emissions as demonstrated by the following Global Warming Potential figures:
The carbon footprint of BTT’s woven geotextiles is amongst the lowest in the industry, making them one of the most sustainable solutions for civil engineering projects.
“The environmental reflex is no longer an option or a nice to have – it lies in the heart of what BTT does and what we stand for,” says Francis Denoo, Sales Manager, Geotextiles. “This EPD shows that our products fit perfectly in the global drive to reduce our carbon footprint and those of our customers. The use of our woven geotextiles in infrastructure projects reduces CO2 emissions with a factor 10 compared to more conventional methods such as gravel.”
