Why choose DATASMART LCI package?

North American data

Where possible, DATASMART replaces links from European unit processes with U.S.-specific data about topics such as electricity, natural gas, soybeans, etc. The Dummy processes in the USLCI data are replaced with a close proxy. The end result is a database that better represents U.S. operations.

Electricity mixes for U.S.

Electricity mixes have been added for all 50 U.S. states, at the high, medium and low voltage levels. Now you can see the impacts of moving production from state to state.

New LTS data

DATASMART contains over 700 new processes, covering industries such as textiles, packaging, bio-materials, metals and dairy. New waste treatments and scenarios have been added, including new U.S. landfill data, waste treatments with 0% water content, waste scenarios for white goods and electronics and more.
