In the framework of the EcoTimberCell project, ITeC has actively contributed to the LCA of the EcoTimberCell. This has been developed under the UNE-EN 15804:2012+A2:2019 and UNE-EN-ISO 14025:2010 standards, and the UNE-EN 16485:2014 standard has been used as Product Category Rule.
Currently, EcoTimberCell and all its derivatives have not yet been confirmed by the DAPcons® verification rules, although the LCA remains valid.
ITeC's Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance and Sustainable Construction departments have been working to accommodate this LCA and to be able to issue the environmental product declaration (EPD) once regular production begins.
In summary, ITeC's action has been to carry out a critical review of the LCA carried out by CETEMAS and, therefore, to help in the evaluation of the sustainability and to favour the future commercialisation of this product.
