Included products in this EPD
Aggregates are generally available in the form of a homogeneous bulk product. The product characteristics are standardised, to ensure the necessary levels of reliability and processability. Sand occurs naturally and is composed of fine rock material and mineral particles (0/2mm and 0/4mm), gravel is composed of unconsolidated rock fragments (2/8mm, 2/16mm, 8/16mm and 4/16mm). Stone is quarried, crushed, and ground to produce aggregates of various sizes: 0/2mm, 0/5mm, 5/8mm, 5/11mm, 8/11, 11/16mm, 11/22mm, 4/16mm, 0/32mm and 0/45mm.
