We currently have the following LCI Sources:
  • Australasian
  • North American
  • United Kingdom
  • New Zealand
  • Global
If your project does not fall within the specific regions above, that would not be a barrier for conducting LCA in eTool. Due to globalisation of markets, the Global LCI source will provide good data for conducting LCAs for any other region.
What’s more important is to ensure that the appropriate electricity & water grids have been specified for your project and to consider transport distances for the high volume products.
We have more electricity grid options in eTool with plans in the pipeline to make even more available.
If you’re unable to find a grid that is of your particular region, our recommendation is to use another grid that has the same carbon emissions as your region as a proxy. This would require you to find out what the grid emission factors are for your project. Should you need further assistance with finding the most suitable grid for your project, please raise a Support Request.
