SimaPro Faculty

SimaPro Faculty is a basic version of SimaPro for education. It offers lecturers the functionalities needed to effectively teach life cycle assessment and guide the next generation of sustainability professionals. SimaPro Faculty is a great tool for learning the concept of life cycle thinking and gaining an understanding of LCA through practical assignments.

The package comes as a single-user version, meaning only one person can access a database or project at a time, but it can be installed on all Windows computers of your department’s students and staff. It is available as a one-year subscription and includes various databases including ecoinvent. After it expires, the software will run as a demo version – you can still access your data and make calculations, but cannot make any changes.
