Transparent life-cycle assessment

Chemicals company Lanxess is now offering verified environmental product declarations (EPDs) for some of its products.

According to the company, the EPDs allow Lanxess to deliver comprehensive information about the whole life environmental impact of its pigments. The information provided is based on the international ISO 14025 standard as well as the European EN 15804 standard for construction products and services of all kinds.

“Publishing EPDs is a mark of our commitment to setting the highest sustainability standards in the pigments industry,” said Michael Ertl, head of the inorganic pigments business unit at Lanxess. “Our iron oxide pigments from the trusted Bayferrox brand are used to add color to concrete building materials as well as for paints and plastics employed in the construction industry worldwide,” he added.
