Caltrans to Use EPDs in Pilot Tests

Last month, the California Asphalt Pavement Association (CalAPA) hosted a webinar on environmental product declarations (EPDs). During the webinar, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced an initial list of four asphalt pavement projects that will request EPDs as part of the bid. This is part of a pilot project designed to allow Caltrans to discern the industry’s ability to document its environmental impact.

NAPA’s Emerald Eco-Label tool is designed to ease the development of ISO-standard, plant- and mix-specific EPDs. Click here for more information about the tool.
