VOC and formaldehyde quantities can´t be directly tracked in eToolLCD because they are not Impact indicators. eToolLCD will have in its database for example the impact value for Human Toxicity Potential, Human Toxicity Cancer and Non-Cancer which is a combined result depending on the building product composition. Life Cycle Inventory data will inform industry average indicators and Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) will inform product specific impact data.

eToolLCD user will be able to track specific product performance with EPDs and analyse for example Human Toxicity Potential expressed in terms of damage to human health by the index mDALY, and not specific concentration of Formaldehyde measured in mg/litre or ppm.
