Through research projects and close collaboration with academic institutions, the Danish company, Centrum Pæle A/S, which is a manufacturer of precast concrete foundation piles, makes sure its techniques are at the forefront of innovation so that it can offer the most effective, smart, and sustainable all-round solutions for its customer's challenges.
Indeed, its extensive research into ‘Energy Piles' is a testament to its ethos as a market leader; inciting innovation as a key factor for reaching cost-effective development and competitiveness, and product development.
Most recently, Centrum Pæle A/S has published environmental product declarations (EPD) for its entire product range, including:
- Continuously reinforced precast concrete piles (including bitumen and energy tubes as add-ons)
- CPG pile splices
- Centrum EPD - rock shoes
The EPDs are officially verified by a third-party consultant and are as such publicly available through the official industry organisation EPD Danmark, on www.epddanmark.dk.
The EPDs are based on a life cycle assessment report, which goes into detail regarding the manufacturing processes and materials used. EPDs highlight how much CO2 is emitted in the production of a specific product, including anything from materials to energy used (electricity, heating, etc.).
Centrum Pæle's director Lars Gøttrup Christensen said: "Having EPDs is an important milestone for Centrum Pæle, since they enable us to stay ahead of the curve and consolidate our position as the leading precast pile system manufacturer on the Northern European market. At Centrum Pæle, we want our piles to form the basis for even more sustainable construction projects - and it is only our imagination that limits how we can contribute to a fundamentally greener construction in the future."
