Product Category Rule

The American Coal Ash Association has been working with consultant Smart EPD and industry and academic technical experts for the creation of a Product Category Rule (PCR) for cementitious materials. A PCR provides the necessary information for creation of a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), leading to the creation of an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). EPDs are quickly becoming mandatory for construction projects, particularly if federal funding is involved. The PCR for cementitious materials can be found here. For more information on the PCR, LCA, or EPD, please contact ACAA at [email protected].
