Why choose the WEEE LCI database?

Assess the performance of an ecodesign strategy

The datasets are developed to support different ecodesign projects. The WEEE LCI database helps quantify the impacts and benefits of EEE recycling and guides 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 database covers 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, and the three main plastics recycled from WEEE (PP, PS and ABS). External and independent experts have conducted peer reviews.

Compatible with all LCIA methods

WEEE LCI was 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.
