Fairfax, Virginia – The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) has completed a five-year update to its ISO-compliant lifecycle assessment and environmental product declaration for three generic SPF product formulations. These include open-cell, closed-cell and roofing foams.
Sustainability specialist Thinkstep helped the Alliance with the assessments.
New this year are LCAs and EPDs for a fourth product type: low-pressure two-component closed-cell insulation and sealant foams.
Two separate EPDs have already been published. One EPD includes HFC-based blowing agents for closed-cell foams, while the second includes HFO-based low-GWP blowing agents.
The EPDs allow SPF contractors help building designers gain proper credit among sustainable building programmes for SPF insulation and roofing materials.
