We would like to inform you that the ELCD database II is now online at
The ELCD II database comprises over 300 Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data sets of key materials, energy carriers, and transport and waste treatment services of European market scope. The database includes a range of official data sets from the industry associations that are members of the European Business Advisory Group. Some yet missing data will be added subsequently in the coming months. All data sets can be used free of charge.
The data sets are provided in the recently finished International Reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD) format and a number of LCA software developers have announced to implement import/export interfaces; please contact your software provider for more information.
The future work on the ELCD II DB foresees to further improve the method harmonization of the data inline with the upcoming ILCD Handbook.
