    FEICA in the news: Adhesives and Sealants Play Crucial Role in the EU Construction Sector Amid Energy Crisis

    ASI (Adhesives & Sealants Industry Magazine)  published the FEICA article online (Nov 2022).

    In it, Dimitris Soutzoukis, Senior Regulatory Affairs Manager at FEICA, explains that in the sustainability transition pathway for the construction ecosystem, there are two critical elements: the energy efficiency of buildings and the material efficiency of the installed materials. Adhesives and sealants strongly support both of these elements.

    Feica in the news: Adhesives and sealants in the construction ecosystem

    Fastener + Fixing magazine publishes FEICA article 'Adhesives and sealants in the construction ecosystem' in their 138th issue and online (Nov 2022).

    In it, Dimitris Soutzoukis, Senior Regulatory Affairs Manager at FEICA, talks about the sustainability of products in the construction sector receiving much attention in Europe. The importance of this subject is justified by the sheer scale of the construction sector, its share in the materials used and produced in the European Union, and the share of greenhouse gas emissions it represents. In addition, the ongoing geopolitical and energy crisis also affects this particular sector significantly.

    Summary Report: Adhesives and sealants’ key sustainability role in the transition pathway for the construction ecosystem

    Sustainability in the construction sector is receiving substantial attention in the European Union (EU) as a consequence of both the absolute scale of this sector and its share of materials usage and greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. Recent legislative initiatives, such as the EU Green Deal, cover the construction sector with specific provisions, addressing all levels from entire buildings to construction elements and to the materials used for their production and installation. The environmental performance of adhesives and sealants used in the construction sector is therefore of high interest. The full report is available for FEICA members here.

  • FEICA and Deutsche Bauchemie Detailed Statement on Commission Proposal for a Revision of the CPR.pdf

    Uploaded July 25, 2022

    Joint Statement of FEICA and Deutsche Bauchemie on the Proposal of the European Commission for a Revision of the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011)

    The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) plays a key role for the construction chemicals industry. The revision should overcome current problems in harmonised standardisation. It should further strengthen the European single market for construction products so that construction and renovation measures remain affordable and make an important contribution to the fight against climate change. To support the transformation to a greener and more digital construction sector, the environmental sustainability of construction products must be brought more into focus in the future CPR, whereby practicable provisions are important to ensure feasibility and cost efficiency.

    This document includes the FEICA and Deutsche Bauchemie joint detailed position on the European Commission's proposal.

    Complete FEICA study: 'Adhesives and sealants’ key sustainability role in the transition pathway for the construction ecosystem'

    Recent legislative initiatives, such as the EU Green Deal, cover the construction sector with specific provisions, addressing all levels, from entire buildings to construction elements, and to the materials used for their production and installation. The environmental performance of adhesives and sealants used in the construction sector is therefore of high interest.

    FEICA commissioned an extensive analysis on the sustainability performance of adhesives and sealants. The analysis provides an overview of key aspects of sustainability related to adhesives and sealants in the construction sector, with consideration being given to such matters as energy efficiency and material efficiency.

    The full report 'Adhesives and sealants’ key sustainability role in the transition pathway for the construction ecosystem' is now available for members. A summary of the report is also available on the FEICA public website via this link.
