Assessment of the environmental impact of building products
Building products are often in contact with rainwater and thus may release potentially harmful compounds by leaching processes. With a new assessment method, these potential effects of buildings can be estimated. This gives manufacturers and users of these products an indication of their potential for water pollution. The products are thereby assigned to one of three pollution classes, which correspond to the corresponding classes of eco-bau and VSA. The assessment concept is presented in a publication in Aqua & Gas.
