Within the scope of the EPD, the totality of released volatile organic compounds and especially the formaldehyde emissions were examined and evaluated in the test chamber experiment. These substances are suspected of causing allergic and carcinogenic (carcinogenic) effects after prolonged exposure, as is typical for interior rooms in apartments. However, gypsum boards and their varieties (damp room, fire protection, perforated and dry screed boards) and gypsum fiber boards (also known as dry screed boards) do not have any of these negative effects on indoor air quality. The indoor emissions values measured and shown in the EPD meet all safety requirements according to the recognized test scheme of the Committee for the Health Assessment of Building Products (AgBB test scheme for interior emissions.

It is also important that steel companies in Germany can apply for and receive funding from the ETS Innovation Fund, which is intended to support the implementation and demonstration of low-carbon steel production. This includes that companies using this program can receive additional funding from other funding programs (“sequencing”). In the 9th EU framework program for research and innovation and the achievement of the “Clean Steel” partnership, Germany should at least participate in proportion to its share in EU steel production.”
