To facilitate the preparation of EN 15804-compliant EPD for the building industry, at EuGeos we have developed a database extension to ecoinvent to allow calculation of specific indicators: the EuGeos' 15804-IA Database to be used with openLCA software.
The latest version of EuGeos' 15804-IA Database - Version 2.1 - is based on ecoinvent v3_3 and can be used in openLCA v1.5 or v1.6. EuGeos' 15804-IA Database V2.1 is available to download from the openLCA Nexus website.
