EnCon Companies Participates in Environmental Product Declarations

Denver, Colo. (January 20, 2016) – EnCon United Company is pleased to announce the release of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) by the North American precast concrete industry in three key precast concrete categories.  The three EPD’s are now available for Architectural and Insulated Wall Panels, Structural Precast Concrete Products, and Underground Precast Concrete Products.  EnCon Companies’ participation in this industry wide accomplishment will help architects, engineers, building owners, and other industry specifiers better understand how precast/prestressed concrete can be used for environmentally conscious construction.


EnCon Companies submitted  detailed reports for Atlanta Structural Concrete, EnCon Colorado, and Stresscon Corporation that followed the precast production process from cradle to grave.  The reporting includes raw material consumption, energy usage, as well as production and manufacturing data.


The information gathered followed the industry’s standard Product Category Rules (PCR).  Athena Sustainable Materials Institute then prepared the EPDs based on the submitted information.  The EPDs meet ISO 14025 and ISO 21930 standards, ASTM International’s EPD operator rules, and Product Category Rules for Preparing an Environmental Product Declaration for Precast Concrete (UN CPC 3755).
The North American precast concrete industry is made up of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (CPCI), and the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA).


For more information on participating plants, and to download the EPDs, please visit PCI’s new EPD page at  www.pci.org.
