WEEE LCI databases

WEEE LCI are French life cycle inventory databases. Two databases linked to the management of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the context of the French Producer Responsibility Organization are available:

  • WEEE LCI: over 900 LCI datasets to model the end-of-life of household and some professional electrical and electronic equipment.
  • Recycled plastics from WEEE LCI: 3 LCI datasets covering the main plastics (PP, PS and ABS) recycled from waste from EEE collected in France and regenerated in Europe.

To use the database, you must agree with the terms of use, have an active license for SimaPro 9 or later, and a valid service contract.

Why choose WEEE LCI databases?

Assess the performance of an ecodesign strategy

The two databases are developed to support different ecodesign projects. The WEEE LCI database helps quantify the impacts and benefits of EEE recycling and guide their design for better recyclability. The recycled plastics from WEEE LCI intends to support projects of recycled plastics integration into new products.

High-quality and extensive WEEE data

The databases cover all the materials frequently found in EEE: over 900 processes, combining 86 materials and all categories of household appliances as well as some professional equipment for the WEEE LCI database, and the three main plastics recycled from WEEE for the Recycled plastics from WEEE LCI database. External and independent experts have conducted peer reviews for each database.

Compatible with all LCIA methods

The two databases were originally developed in SimaPro thus fully compatible with the methods provided in SimaPro. Furthermore, thorough documentation was created to fulfill ILCD entry-level requirements and can be found on a dedicated platform.
