AGRIBALYSE agricultural and food database

AGRIBALYSE 3.1.1 is a French LCI database for the agriculture and food sector. Provided by ADEME, the database includes LCIs for 2517 agricultural and food products produced and/or consumed in France. It combines a production-based and a consumption-based approach.

AGRIBALYSE 3.1.1 is built upon previous versions with contributions from a network of partners including INRAE, the agriculture and agro-food French technical institutes (ACTA-ACTIA), and the consultancies Gingko 21, Sayari, Blonk, Koch Consulting, and EVEA. For imported products, Agribalyse 3.1.1 relies on ecoinvent and WFLDB data.

AGRIBALYSE’s transparent methodology is co-developed within the scientific consortium Revalim. Furthermore, AGRIBALYSE and ecoinvent cooperate on data and modeling methods. Methodology principles follow the key international guidelines as much as possible (ISO, LEAP, PEF).

Implement ecodesign strategies

Combine AGRIBALYSE’s agricultural and food data with primary company data or other databases to work on food LCAs and the ecodesign of food products, for instance by testing different ingredients, processes and farming systems.

Environmental communication

The data in AGRIBALYSE can be used in combination with other data sources for B2B or B2C communication on environmental performance and food LCA. Communication should respect ISO standard recommendations.
