ecoinvent v3 – an introduction to the new features & data
Discussion forum on Life Cycle Assessment
Wedensday June 13, 2012, Dübendorf, Empa Akademie (in English)
Dear colleagues with an interest in Life Cycle Assessment,
We kindly invite you to the 48th discussion forum on Life Cycle Assessment.
The ecoinvent Centre provides the most relevant, reliable, transparent and accessible LCI data worldwide. The new version 3 offers a variety of improvements and exciting features. This includes enhanced flexibility of multiple system models based on the same unit process data, parameterization and integration of formulas, a better and directly integrated documentation, and many other attractive options. Furthermore, many data collection projects expand and update the database, e.g. water use data for many processes, new data for fruits and vegetables, or further national electricity mixes.
In this Forum, the ecoinvent Centre together with its carrying institutes (Empa, ETH, PSI, EPFL and agroscope ART) will introduce to you these new features, components and data of ecoinvent v3 and demonstrate how they can be used to increase the quality of LCA studies.
We look forward to meeting you in Dübendorf
The organizers of LCA Discussion Forum DF48:
Roland Hischier (EMPA, ecoinvent centre)
