Wastewater LCI tool
Wastewater LCI (WW LCI) is an Excel-based model that calculates life cycle inventories of wastewater discharges. With the WW LCI tool, now in v4, you can obtain comprehensive wastewater discharge inventories that include centralized wastewater treatment, decentralized treatment with septic tanks, and untreated discharges. WW LCI v3 also addresses sludge treatment and disposal, including anaerobic digestion, composting, application in agriculture, controlled and uncontrolled landfilling, and incineration.
The tool is programmed in Excel and includes a database with wastewater and sludge management statistics for 92 countries. WW LCI inventories are linked to ecoinvent and can be easily imported into SimaPro as CSV files.Visit website
