Floor Covering – Carpet with INTERFACE 60% recycled EPD: Showing negative CO2e

  • Hi, I’ve used the above template with Interface carpet EPD embedded in one of my projects. Interestingly it is showing negative carbon in “Operational Energy” module. May you clarify?


    Hi Jee Wei, yes that is odd. The PDF attached does not match the inputs in the eTool EPD either. However, there IS an European EPD for Interface carpets that includes module D with negative impacts though. So I would say that this EPD is not a complete write-off. Might have been an unfortunate mistake that the wrong EPD was uploaded which is a shame as the inputs seem quite comprehensive. I would suggest that this EPD be used with caution and the data scrutinised. If deemed inappropriate for your project, I would strongly recommend creating a new EPD for the specific product you’re using.
