Afin d’évaluer le caractère environnemental d’un matériau, des outils d’évaluation existent. Le plus complet est l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie qui est une méthodologie normée internationalement (ISO 14040-14044) permettant d’obtenir l’impact environnemental d’un produit tout au long de son cycle de vie. Les résultats d’une telle étude peuvent être déclinés pour obtenir une fiche de déclaration environnementale des produits étudiés, permettant d’illustrer l’impact des différentes étapes sur l’environnement. Ces fiches ont également pour but la comparaison environnementale de produits ayant la même application. Notre étude est basée sur l’évaluation environnementale de produits en pierre naturelle, à savoir la pierre bleue et le grès à travers divers produits finis. Le but premier de cette étude est de mettre en évidence les étapes responsables du plus grand impact environnemental pour chaque produit et ainsi permettre à la carrière étudiée de revoir ses positions et de modifier certaines lignes de conduite afin d’améliorer les impacts environnementaux obtenus. Au vu de la compétition asiatique régnant sur le marché des pierres naturelles, un volet supplémentaire de l’étude a été consacré à l’évaluation de l’impact environnemental des concurrents directs des produits mentionnés ci-dessus. Pour conclure, l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie va devenir, au fil des années, une démarche incontournable à étendre à chaque carrière, et à la production de matériaux de construction au sens large, afin de leur donner les ressources nécessaires pour relever le défi du développement durable.

This study performs the environmental product declarations for three Belgian mineral products, two granite and one sandstone paving. Both main goals of this work were to obtain Belgian environmental product declarations to strengthen existing databases and to get similar information for their Asian counterparts. Indeed, competition with China for bluestone products and with India for sandstone pavement is very important due to very competitive prices despite their foreign origin and possibly higher induced environmental impacts. Environmental product declarations of Belgian bluestone and sandstone products were conducted in accordance with the ISO standards and following the stand-ard NF P 01-010. CML 2001 method was used to obtain environmental impacts for ten categories as climate change, acidification, abiotic resources depletion, etc. Boundaries of the Belgian systems are the same and the life cycle assessment comprises all steps from the extraction of minerals to the implementation on site. Use and end of life steps were neglected due to the low required maintenance and the inert nature of the paving. For Asian products, the analysis is reduced to the transportation of the functional unit, mainly due to the lack of reliable data. This work highlights the negative effect of long distance transportation of heavy and non-energetic products. Indeed, the environmental impacts of the sole transport of Asian products are at least as important as those obtained for the whole life cycle of Belgian products, whatever the category taken into account (climate change, acidification, air pollution, etc.). CML 2001 methodology was successfully applied to these five studies about three Belgian products and two abroad transportation steps. Comparison of the 5 corresponding environmental product declarations permits to highlight the importance of the transport on environment and to promote, supposing equal performance, local prod-ucts in a more environmental-friendly point of view.

Construction is a field which is concerned by environment. Tools as environmental product declarations are increasingly often used to compare several products and to take account of the environmental sphere in the choice. Environmental declarations of Belgian bluestone and sandstone products were realized in accordance with the ISO standards and following the standard NF P 01-010. The main goals of these studies were to obtain Belgian environmental product declarations to strengthen existing databases and to provide defences against Asian competition. Indeed, competition with China for bluestone products and with India for sandstone pavement is very important due the fact of the very competitive prices for foreign products. The impacts on climate change, resources and acidification of the sole transport were taken into account for foreign products and they are at less as important as these obtained for the whole life cycle of Belgian products.
