ProAir pioneers with EPDs for ventilation systems

Irish mechanical ventilation manufacturer ProAir has become one of the first companies in the world to gain Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for mechanical ventilation systems.
The Galway-based company now has independently verified data on the embodied carbon of heat recovery ventilation and mechanical extract ventilation systems, verified and published under the EPD Ireland programme.
An EPD lays out the environmental performance of a construction product through its life cycle. Following a rigorous life cycle assessment, ProAir can demonstrate the environmental impact of the ProAir 600LI, ProAir 600PLI, and the ProAir FRPRO ventilation units, including all life cycle stages in their “cradle to grave” EPD, providing transparency about the environmental impact of the products.
Sustainable construction trends have driven the demand for EPDs for building products. EPDs allow construction professionals to compare the environmental impact of different products and make informed decisions about which to choose for their building project.
The EPD Ireland programme, developed by the Irish Green Building Council, allows manufacturers of construction products to provide third-party verified transparent information on the environmental impacts of their products. It provides a platform for specifiers to source products with EPDs and other information such as responsible procurement or declaration of healthy ingredients.
