Environmental responsibility

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and VERDE are different evaluation and certification systems to demonstrate the eco-efficiency and sustainability of a building or project. These certifications take into account all factors that affect environmental impact, such as energy efficiency, water use, reduction of CO2 emissions or reduction in natural resource consumption.

The WELL standard, unlike the previous ones, evaluates and certifies the effectiveness of the building in terms of the health and well-being of the occupants.

Ceramic materials of ESTUDIO CERÁMICO, like other building materials, in themselves cannot have these certifications, but thanks to their excellent properties and the production process that makes them possible, they are a great ally during certification, since our products have a number of characteristics that increase the score of the building:

SUSTAINABILITY OF THE PROCESS

 

• ESTUDIO CERÁMICO makes use of local raw materials for the manufacture of its ceramic product, reducing as much as possible the air pollution caused by its transport.
• Due to the production process itself, all ESTUDIO CERÁMICO products have a high percentage of recycled material, both for the purification and reuse of process water and for the return of materials to suppliers for inclusion in new raw material.
• ESTUDIO CERÁMICO does not pour liquid waste into inland waters or any element of the HPD (Hydraulic Public Domain), using a closed circuit in which the water used is either purified and reused, or returned to the supplier, always being contained within the value chain, so it has a low water footprint.

RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

 

• Ceramic discharges do not emit substances harmful to animal or plant life.
• Due to their porosity-free enamelled surface, all our products are easy to clean (achieving the highest category according to the international standard ISO 10545-14), so it is not necessary to use for the daily maintenance of our products or aggressive cleaners or large amounts of water, thus reducing the consumption of resources associated with the maintenance of the building.

SECURITY

 

• All ESTUDIO CERÁMICO products are free of toxic substances such as asbestos or lead. Its use is 100% health-safe.
• They also do not emit any kind of volatile organic compound (VOC) during their lifetime, which gives it the highest classification according to the international standard ISO 16000.
• Due to their high thermal stability (above 1000ºC), all our products are considered fireproof and have the highest classification in fire resistance.

It is available to customers who request it, our Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), developed and verified externally in accordance with UNE-EN ISO 14025:2010 and UNE-EN 15804:2012+A1:2014.
