The project team Büro für Umweltchemie, Zurich, Oektoxzentrum, Dubendorf, and UMTEC; Rapperswil, developed a concept for construction products in the use phase of the life cycle. The concept is addressing manufacturers interested in the declaration of their leaching performance and environmental impact to surface waters. Depending on the product formulation, laboratory test results are used for the risk assessment with COMLEAM. Finally, the aquatic footprint are summarized in three or four product classes.
