LCA Tools & Database
Why build an LCA tool?
Conducting a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for businesses with many products can be a large undertaking. Thankfully, the use of specially developed LCA tools greatly improves the efficiency and effectiveness of calculating the impact of each product. With your own LCA tool, you can easily increase your understanding of the impact of your product range. This gives you access to information for making decisions for R&D purposes and other internal needs. Such as what materials or processes contribute most to your Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission profile.
LCA Calculation Tools
Many companies or large organizations have many products and many locations. In order to assess the product or organizational impact, it can be quite a task to conduct the same analysis for each factor. This is where a tool and well-designed database of reliable background data can be extremely valuable.
Basically, properly developed tools, such as for measuring emissions, allow companies and organizations to easily calculate the environmental footprint of their product or service. To do this, a database is first developed containing all of the background information on a product or value chain. Then, a user-friendly interface allows the user to input data efficiently, play around with variables, and generate results in a matter of seconds.
This way, whether you are calculating the carbon footprint of existing products, or checking out how different activities or raw materials affect impact, a tool helps generate results quickly, reliably, and efficiently.
