EuPC’s Building & Construction Division with New Website
The Building & Construction Market Division of the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) has recently launched a new website. The website, www.plasticsinconstruction.com , was developed in collaboration with PlasticsEurope in order to showcase the benefits of plastics products and solutions in the building and construction sector as well as the possibilities it can offer to society.
The website offers clear and concise information on various plastic applications used in building and construction, ranging from floor and roof coverings to window profiles and pipes. Since 2014, in order to achieve its mission in “making plastics the material of choice in building and construction”, EuPC’s Building & Construction Division has been focusing on proactive communication, the building of a knowledge center and on further developing partnerships with its network of authorities, associations and customers.
Working groups initiated and participated in a number of meetings with officials on national and European levels to advocate for plastics products in construction. The division closely follows the works of CEN/TC 351 in the development of horizontal standardised assessment methods for harmonised approaches relating to the release of regulated dangerous substances under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). The Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) pilot project initiated by European Commission to find a harmonised method for life cycle analyses is another topic monitored by the division. Furthermore, a guidance document regarding the behaviour of specific construction products when under fire is being developed.
