Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for AGC's Low-Carbon Float Glass 

After collecting all the necessary data from two plants – Moustier (Belgium) and Seingbouse (France) – AGC releases its Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Low-Carbon Float Glass, which is published in INIES. This third-party verified EPD presenting the life-cycle analysis of AGC Low-Carbon Glass features a reduced Global Warming Potential  of 5.5 kg CO2 eq/m² as expressed for 4 mm float glass. This represents a significant reduction compared to standard float glass.
