In December 2015 Iplex Pipelines first published a suite of verified and registered International Environmental Product Declarations (EPD®). The declarations cover our BlackMAX™ and SewerMAX™ polypropylene drainage pipes, ApolloBLUE™, Rhino® and Iplex Premium PVC pressure pipes, along with foam core and solid wall DWV pipe and conduits. The suite was extended in May 2016 to include polyethylene pressure and non-pressure pipes and conduits. The polyethylene pipe range includes Poliplex® pressure pipes for water and gas, Sewerplex™ non-pressure sewer pipe, Greenline™ our economical water pipe for rural irrigation applciations, Thermapipe® the mining slurry pipe supplied with a white outer skin for high solar relfectance and our new Millennium® high stress crack resistant pipe for trenchless installation and high value assets.
So what is an EPD®?
Environmental Product Declarations are third-party verified documents based on ISO 14025 and EN 15804 Standards that communicate transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product or service. Specifically, product declarations include information on the environmental impact of raw material acquisition, energy use and efficiency, composition of materials and chemical substances, emissions to air, soil and water and waste generation.
Most importantly, EPD®'s are of great assistance to our customers; the builders and developers seeking to construct environmentally responsible buildings and infrastructure, because EPD®'s present key environmental product performance data in a uniform format.
Access to Iplex pipe EPD®'s provides constructors of these projects with the evidence they require to claim credit points under the Green Building Council of Australia and the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia's rating systems.
