Established in the United States in 1993 by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is now the most widely used building sustainability certification standard in the world. Consider any field that involves the design and management of new or redeveloped commercial and residential buildings or neighborhoods.
Alubel has implemented the mapping of its products, according to the international standard LEED V4.1 BD + C, in order to highlight the characteristics of processes and products. This action was taken to identify how they can specifically contribute to the sustainability objectives of construction investments and to develop a specific credit matrix that can help meet the green building certification scheme.
The DM of June 23, 2022 on Minimum Environmental Criteria (C.A.M. Building) reports the rules to be followed in terms of environmental sustainability for the award of services and design of works for the new construction, renovation and maintenance of public buildings. The decree collects a series of criteria that buildings and building components must respect in terms of environmental sustainability and sustainable resource consumption. Upon specific request, it is possible to request products from Alubel that meet the following criteria:
2.3.3 Reduction of the "Heat Island" effect: We can provide you with the specific S.R.I. reflectance values of the different color ranges, depending on the metal used, validated by accredited laboratory EElab - Enzo Ferrari Engineering Department UNIMORE
- 184.108.40.206 Material emission: the VOC EMISSION values have been validated by an accredited laboratory
- 220.127.116.11 Disassembly and end of life: The dry installation of Alubel products allows for selective demolition at the end of life. The product can then be reused or recycled after disassembling the elements constituting the panel.
-2.5.1 Material emission: The product range with a insulation core has been tested at accredited laboratories. All products have passed the CAM Building standards set forth in the decree and, as a rewarding criterion, the achievement of Indoor Air Comfort® or Indoor Air Comfort Gold® levels
-2.5.7 Thermal and acoustic insulation: Upon specific request, it is possible to provide products with an insulating core that contain a recycled content of more than 2% for polyurethane and 10% for polystyrene supported by a certificate issued by TÜV Italy.
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that describes the environmental impact related to the production of a specific product quantity or service: for example energy and raw material consumption, waste generation, atmospheric emissions and discharges into water bodies.
The Declaration prepared with reference to an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), which defines the consumption of resources (materials, water, energy) and the impact on surrounding environment in the various stages of the product life cycle of metal corrugated sheets and sidings.
