Why choose WEEE LCI database?

High-quality, extensive WEEE data

The database consists of over 900 processes, combining 86 materials and all categories of household appliances as well as certain professional equipment, defined in the WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU). It is peer-reviewed by external, independent experts and compliant with ILCD entry-level and ISO14040-14044 requirements.

Compatible with all LCIA methods

WEEE LCI database was originally developed in SimaPro thus it is fully compatible with the methods provided in SimaPro. Furthermore, thorough documentation was developed to fulfil ILCD entry-level requirements.

Choice of the modelling approach

Each process is available in two variants, representing two modelling approaches in LCA: including the benefits of recycling and energy recovery (system expansion) and not including them (cut-off).
