KG TECU -Eco copper sheets and strips 2.6 Base materials Ancillary materials The material TECU copper consists of 100 % CuDHP according to DIN EN 1172 i.e. oxygen-free phosphorus de-oxidised copper with limited residual phospho-rus. The degree of purity is at least 99.90 % copper. Only internal and external scrap is used in production. Primary copper cathode is not used. Additives Rolling oil-emulsion 0.544 g kg Cu is a highly refined mineral oil containing organic esters polyhydrocarbons and antioxidants which is used for cooling and lubrication during the rolling process. The rolling oil emulsion is biodegradable. Benzotriazole 0.000642 mg kg Cu is used to temporarily protect the metal. It does not enter the wastewater during production. In the Patinating process of TECU Patina In a thermal mechanical-process a green Patina is created directly from the copper surface. This process involves the use of an oxidising solution that creates basic copper salts and copper oxides within 6 8 weeks at defined cli-matic conditions in the plant. In the Oxidising process of TECU Oxide The copper strips are cleansed of rolling oil and emulsion in a de-greasing process and are then subjected to a two-phase oxidation process. 2.7 Manufacture The manufacturing process consists of 12 steps Pouring the highly pure Cu-DHP is poured into slabs i.e. extruded blocks. Heating the slabs are heated in a furnace to a hot-roll temperature of approx. 900 C. Hot-rolling on a roll stand with a top and bottom roller (reversing duo) the copper is roughed down in several passes i.e. the thickness is reduced by decreasing the gap between the rollers. Milling the thermal oxidation due to the high temperatures in heating and hot-rolling causes a scale to form on the surface of the copper which is re-moved by milling before the metal is subjected to any other surface. In this process several tenths of a millimetre are removed from each side. Cold roughing on a reverse quartet (four high stand) the copper band undergoescold roughing. With more passes the material is reshaped and becomesmore solid. Intermediate annealing before further processing the copper is sub-jected to heat treatment involving intermediate annealing which causes a targeted loss of cohesion in the copper. This process is carried out in a protected atmosphere to prevent a renewed thermal oxidation of the surface. Finish rolling the final thickness of the material for TECU Eco copper strips and sheets is normally in the range 0.6 or 0.7 mm with a desired stabilityof usually R-240 (see page 3 Mechanical properties of Cu-DHP ) are achieved in the stability or condition rolling process. Stretcher levelling in a stretch-levelling plant the tolerances with regard to linearity and surface evenness are further reduced. Packing After the production the products are packed. 2.8 Environment and health during manufacturing Air The air is purified in filter plants to below the maximum values required by law in terms of emissions to air (TA Luft). Water soil No additional impact on water or soil occurs. The cooling of the cast-ing process is based on a closed water circuit. The wastewater produced by the etching plant is cleaned in a neutralisation plant and discharged into the city sew-age system after daily analysis and provision of retention samples. Noise Due to adequate acoustical absorption devices measurements of sound levels have shown that all values inside and outside the production plant are far below the limits required by public law. There are no measures relating to health protection during the manufacturing process extending beyond national guidelines (of the production country) needed. No separate certification according to the requirements of the ISO 14001 has taken place. 2.9 Product processing Installation During transportation and storage store (in the original packaging at room temperature) in a dry place. For temperatures below 0 before opening the packaging units first allow them to warm up to room temperature. Material can be processed tension-free. When installing and working with the building material changes in length due to temperature conditions should be taken into account. Limiting processing temperatures none (recrystallisation level 180 C). Copper alloys can be used in all atmospheres apart from areas with a high am-monia concentration in the air. Detailed information on working with the material such as mounting methods deformation and joining techniques can be found in the corresponding KMEinformation leaflets. 2.10 Packaging Packaging materials used Taut ribbon PP Polyester Disposable reusable palettes wood Cardboard boxes cardboard paper Plastic film (polyethylene foil (LDPE)) With regards to transport packaging and storage no special demands over and above the normal due care and attention are placed on TECU Classic Eco TECU Oxide Eco and TECU Patina Eco. Detailed information on transport packaging and storage can be found in the KME-information leaflets. The reusable palettes can be reused. Not reused packing material is incinerated. 2.11 Condition of use TECU Eco copper is Cu-DHP oxygen-free phosphorous-deoxidised copper. The constituents correspond to the basic substances named in sec- KME Germany GmbH & Co. KG TECU -Eco copper sheets and strips 3 tion 2.6. The changes in colour of the surface are caused by Further weathering causes the oxide layer to gradually grow the thicker and denser it gets the slower this growth becomes. Green Patina the building geometry and the local climate can cause the formation of the green patina that is typical for copper. If TECU products with a pre-oxidised or pre patinated surface (TECU Oxide TECU Patina) are subjected to weathering copper compounds also form in the above-described manner. 2.12 Environment and health during use There will be no affects to health if the TECU Eco products are used according to their designated function. 2.13 Reference service life TECU Eco copper is UV-resistant and does not corrode. It is resistant to condensation(hot water corrosion) to a rust film and to most of the chemical substances used in building construction.Copper can be washed away in soluble or insoluble form by rain. The rates of copper elutriation under atmospheric weathering are between 0.7 g m a and 1 3g m a. This means the lifespan of copper roof cladding is 250 years. 2.14 Extraordinary effects poses any violation of the general quality requirements for flowing waters. In bodies of water copper gets embedded in the sediment. The water in natural bod-ies of water only releases as much copper as is required by the water organisms provided there is enough copper present. A natural balance is created. The deciding factor is the bonding form of the copper which determines its bioavailability. Mechanical destruction Not environmentally relevant for TECU Eco copper sheets. 2.15 Re-use phase The process and new scrap materials that occur in the manufacture and processing of TECU products are entirely fed back into the production process. Separated waste occurring on the construction site and old scrap is collected and sold to secondary smelting companies either directly or via scrap metal dealers. The return rate of this construction waste is almost 100 %. As opposed to many other recycled materials copper scrap is characterised by its very high recyclability. The scrap can be processed into new building products with relatively little expenditure and energy. Energy savings as a result of copper extraction from recycled material are 80 - 92 % compared to primary metal production. 2.16 Disposal The srcap that occurs during the production and further processing of TECU Eco Copper is completely fed back into the production process. Due to the effective recycling process no copper from roof cladding or roof drainage systems has to be disposed of. Waste code B1010. The packaging materials that are used paper cardboard polyethylene (PE film) polypropylene (PP film) and steel can be recycled. If collected separately they can be returned via INTERSEROH (INTERSEROH- Certificate Contract no. 25945) where packaging is collected from its point of origin in returnable containers taking statutory regulations into account. The returnable wooden and steel pallets are returned and refunded (deposit system). 2.17 Further information www.kme.com KME Germany GmbH & Co KG Architectural Solutions Klosterstr. 29 49074 Osnabr ck Fire Fire performance The TECU products comply with DIN 4102 Part 1 the Requirements of Building Material Class A1 non-combustible . Smoke production smoke concentration No smoke develops. A small amount of smoke can only develop with TECU Patina Eco products if the temperature exceeds approx. 400 C. Toxicity of the fumes When patina decomposes above approx. 440 C water vapour and small quantities of HCI are released. The resulting Cu(I)Cl melts at approx. 400 C. Change of state (burning drip down drop-out) The melting point is 1083 C. Water Besides the naturally occurring geologically-related copper content in water widely-distributed anthropogenic sources add their share too. There is no evidence to sug-gest that precipitation water running off TECU Eco copper roofs into flowing waters 3 LCA Calculation rules The provision of resources additives and energy Transport of resources and additives to the production site Production process of copper sheets on site including energy production of additives disposal of production residues consideration of related emissions and recycling of production scrap ( looping back ) Recycling of copper sheets at End-of-Life ( looping back ). 3.1 Declared unit The declaration applies to 1 kg copper sheet with and without surface treatment. The declared unit is the production and recycling of one kg plain copper sheet(TECU Classic Eco) and surface treated copper sheet (TECU Oxid Eco TECU Patina Eco). 3.2 System boundary Type of EPD cradle to gate - with options. The following processes were considered in the product stages A1-A3 of the copper sheet production 4 KME Germany GmbH & Co. KG TECU -Eco copper sheets and strips 3.3 Estimates and assumptions For transports an average transport distance of 300 km was assumed. The wooden pallets are assumed to be circulation material that is to be reused. Therefore they are not considered within the declared modules. The catalyst used in Patina-coating is assumed to be copper-chloride 3.4 Cut-off criteria All material flows that enter the system and are over 1 % of their entire mass or contribute more than 1 % to the primary energy consumption were taken into consideration on the input side. All material flows that exit the system and whose environmental impact makes up more than 1 % of the total impact in an impact category considered are covered on the output side. 3.5 Background data In order to model the life cycle for the production and recycling of the copper strips the GaBi 5 software system developed by PE International was used GaBi 5 . All relevant background data necessary for the production of copper strips were taken from the software GaBi 5 or were made available by the KME Germany GmbH & Co. KG. All datasets in relation with the production can be found in the GaBi 5 documentation GaBi 5 Documentation 3.6 Data quality All data used in the Life Cycle Assessment was taken from the databases of the GaBi 5 Software. All data used was updated less than 8 years ago. 3.7 Period under review The data for the Life Cycle assessment is based on a datacollection of KME Germany GmbH & Co. KG from the production year 2011. 3.8 Allocation In this product system the following allocation is made The recycling potential was calculated according to the requirement of the IBU PCR document Construction Metals . It describes the ecological value of a material s accumulation in the technosphere . It states how many environmental burdens may be avoided in relation to a new pro-duction of the material (here the avoidance of primary copper production). For this purpose a collection rate of 99% is assumed. This value is taken from KME sources. Taking into account this collection rate and today s technologies in metal recycling for one kilogram of copper strip. The amount of scrap available in the end-of-life phase has to be corrected by the loss rate of one percent. This loss of scrap leads to a defizit of scrap in the life cycle. There is more scrap needed in the system as it is available in the system. Thereby primary material has to be added. This leads to a burden in Modul D. This represents the life cycle view. 3.9 Comparability Basically a comparison or an evaluation of EPD data is only possible if all the data sets to be compared were created according to FprEN 15804 and the building context respectively the product-specific characteristics of performance are taken into account. 4 LCA Scenarios and additional technical information Use (B1) See chapter 2.11 Usage. The Usage is not considered in this study and has to be added for the assessment of a whole building. Reuse- Recovery- and Recycling potential (D) The following technical information is a basis for the declared modules or can be used for developing specific scenarios in the context of a building assessment if modules are not declared (MND). Transport to the construction site (A4) The transport to construction is not part of the life cycle assessment. Installation in the building (A5) The declared copper sheets and strips can be used roofing wall cladding and roof drainage systems (roof gutters pipes and equipment). Modul D contains the recyclingpotential. A collection rate of 99% was assumed. The amount of copper scrap that is available for the end-of-life recycling after the scrap required for production has been subtracted is credited. The credit for the copper left-over is calculated with the dataset of the primary copper-cathode production. KME Germany GmbH & Co.

KG TECU -Eco copper sheets and strips ReuseRecoveryRecyclingpotential D X Credits D Transport Transport Transport Disposal Repair Use 6 LCA Interpretation The Ozon Depletion Potential (ODP) is mostly influenced by the generation of electricity and the provision of charcoal. In the production process the main contributer to the Eutrophication Potential (EP) is the gernation of thermal and electrical energy. Acidifiation Potential (AP) and the Photochemical Ozone Creating Potential (POCP) are also mainly dominated by the generation of electricity. Transports for the TECU Eco products in the case of POCP have a positive effect. The reason is that the Nitrogenmonoxide-Emissions that occure during transportation have a negative characterization factor in the impact assessment. This leads to a Credit regarding POCP for transports. For the TECU Patina Eco 96% of the contribution to ADP-Elements is from the catalyst (assumed to be copper-chloride). For almost all Impact categories assessed for the products TECU Classic Eco TECU Oxid Eco and TECU Patina Eco the pre-chains for the generating of thermal and electrical energy have a siginficant relevance. Modul D contains a burden. This is is caused by the additional need of primrary material because of the collection loss in the endof-life phase. As there is no primary copper cathode used in the production ADP-Elments for the products TECU Classic Eco and TECU Oxid Eco in the production phase is dominated by the used deionized water (Classic) and Sodium Hydroxide (Oxid). The corresponding values are very low and can therefore be neglected. For PERT the main contributers are the used charcoal and the pre-chains for generating electricity. The main contributers to PENRT are the pre-chains for generating electricity and thermal energy. GWP is mainly influenced by the geration of electricity and thermal energy. In addition the production processes itself have a significant contribution.
