General comment
The data set covers all relevant process steps / technologies over the supply chain of the represented cradle to gate inventory with a good overall data quality. The inventory is mainly based on industry data and is completed, where necessary, by secondary data. End-of-life recycling stage is not included in the cradle-to-gate inventory. The recycled content of the products is 40% taking into account recovered paper as well as post-consumer recycling of plasterboard, FGD gypsum (fluegas desulphurisation gypsum) and titanogypsum, the three of them replacing natural gypsum stone. This indicator specifies the advantages of the use of recycled or recovered material on resource depletion and land use not integrated in the mandatory assessments under the ISO 14040 series.
