The Nicolás Correa Group, GNC, continues betting on environmental product declarations, EPD, as a market instrument for the environmental differentiation of its milling machines.

At the forefront in the development of ecodesign of milling machines, in 2006 the Nicolás Correa Group (through its subsidiary GNC Hypatia) won the National Machine Tool Design Award with the model ECO-DIANA fixed bed milling machine, distinguished from the rest of projects for its innovative design developed under environmental criteria. Result of making a first approximation on how to measure the environmental footprint in this type of product.

In 2011, the Nicolás Correa Group opted for the development of the EPDS for a range of compact fixed bed milling machines, NORMA model, with the aim of continuing with the design and environmental product innovation in the policies of its organization.

Currently, and following its strategic line of management, based on responsibility and the pursuit of excellence, the new environmental declaration S-P-01100 is now available for the range of NORMA model milling machines, sponsored by the International System EPD®System, program of environmental declaration of product with greater baggage, prestige and diffusion in the international scientific community.

The application of this philosophy, based on the life cycle approach in a machine tool, enables the identification, from the design phase, of constructive machine solutions that minimize environmental impacts throughout all stages of the life cycle (from cradle to grave). The EPD allows to know all the environmental information about the environmental impact of a product taking into account the different stages of its life cycle according to international standards. In addition, they are based on an independent verification of the life cycle analysis data and the information contained in the declaration itself.
The Nicolás Correa Group maintains the leadership as the first European manufacturer that designs, manufactures and markets milling machines with environmental product certifications. The CORREA brand is the only brand of the machine tool sector that carries implicit communication and environmental product performance clearly and precisely and verified by an independent third party.

There are eight machines or modular reconfigurations marketed under this label, including its accessories. The study of life cycle analysis carried out on six structural modules, three accessories and eight reconfigurations has been coordinated by the Miranda de Ebro Technology Center Foundation (CTME) in accordance with the regulations:

  • (ISO 14044:2006) Environmental Management -- Life cycle assessment -- Requirements and Guidelines (2006)
  • (ISO 14025:2006) Environmental Labels and Declarations-type III Environmental Declarations- Principles and Procedures. (2006)
  • GPI, General Programme Instructions for the International EPD® System v2.5 (2015-05-11)
  • PCR 2012:02 V2.0, Product group un CPC 44214 Machine-tools for drilling, boring or milling metal (2018-01-25)
