NREL: U.S. Life-Cycle Inventory Database – About the LCI Database Project
About the LCI Database Project
The U.S. Life-Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database is a publicly available database that allows users to objectively review and compare analysis results that are based on similar data collection and analysis methods.
Finding consistent and transparent LCI data for life-cycle assessments (LCAs) is difficult. NREL works with LCA experts to solve this problem by providing a central source of critically reviewed LCI data through its LCI Database Project. NREL’s High-Performance Buildings research group and the Athena Institute are working closely with government and industry partners to develop and maintain the database.
