Construction LCA concrete plant

Construction & Infrastructure

Find out how we help companies within Construction & Infrastructure to stay ahead of the competition. With efficiency, accuracy and cost-reducing LCA software solutions. Ecochain is an experienced LCA software company with a strong focus and origin in the construction industry and related segments. Ecochain started specifically for production facilities in construction products, that wanted to manage their sustainability performance in one platform.

Why? The built environment has a significant impact on many sectors of our economy, on local jobs and the quality of life. Greenhouse gas emissions from material extraction, manufacturing of construction products, as well as construction and renovation of buildings are estimated at 5-12% of total GHG emissions. It requires vast amounts of resources and accounts for about 50% of all extracted raw material. In addition, this is responsible for over 35% of the EU’s total waste generation.
