thinkstep announces upgrade to GaBi LCI
March 6, 2017
In February, thinkstep announced the availability of its GaBi Databases 2017 Edition, the latest update to the world's leading Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Data. The newly-released product extends coverage to include regionalization of water assessment data that is PEF (Product Environmental Footprint) and OEF (Organizational Environmental Footprint) compliant, land use flows and quantities, hazardous and municipal waste treatment datasets, U.S. electricity region-specific grid mixes, electricity and fuel data for more countries and regions worldwide, EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) and a wide range of new industry association data.
More than 600 new LCI datasets, including 250 new datasets in the professional database, 108 energy products, 89 for India, 47 construction materials, 26 new electronics products, 36 full U.S. datasets, and a further 28 datasets were added to the organic intermediates, inorganic intermediates, food and feed, and renewable materials extension databases, among others.
From an Australian perspective, detailed datasets for Australian timber products, based on the five EPDs for timber products, are included. State specific grid mixes for electricity in Australia are also included.
Updated energy data and upgraded waste water treatment, hazardous waste treatment and municipal waste disposal mix data.
Additional regionalization PEF/OEF support to enable GaBi users to effectively work with this new standard.
All GaBi/ts data sets are ISO 14040 and 14044 compliant.
Existing and newly added construction datasets are available in the modular structure of EN 15804, to ensure users can model and develop EPDs in compliance with this essential European construction standard.
