Abstract [en]

The European Construction Products Regulation (CPR, 305/2011/EU) requires environmental assessment of construction works, but performance data (CE-marking) are of construction products. Both environmental risk assessment (ERA) and life cycle assessment (LCA) need to derive emissions from construction works from harmonised tests on products. Several European countries use national assessment schemes with models of construction works, in order to calculate ERA limit values for construction products. We summarise a number of European construction work ERA schemes for emissions to soil and water. A typical construction works model scenario is a paved road or parking lot, 1m high, with 300 mm/a infiltration and emissions to the groundwater. The scenarios ranged from an infinite bare fill layer through a walking path to an enclosed material inside a road. Water movement modelling ranged from as “batch test” to detailed hydraulic modelling. It seems desirable to have several scenarios for the intended use of construction products in ERA and LCA. This paper shows several examples of existing scenarios, but more work will be needed to find a coherent framework for assessment of emissions from construction works with greater harmonisation.
