Technology Licensing and Purchase

CleanMetrics has developed a significant amount of technology that is now available for licensing or purchase by companies offering software and services for life cycle assessment (LCA) and resource efficiency. CleanMetrics will no longer offer these software tools and services to end users directly.

The most significant part of the CleanMetrics technology is the food LCA software (FoodCarbonScope), including the largest set of commercially available LCI data for North American food production and processing. This software and database have been used in several major food LCA studies recently:

         Life-cycle GHG emissions comparison of organic & conventional crops

       Climate change and economic impacts of US national food waste

       EWG’s Meat Eater’s Guide

The technology suite also includes a general purpose LCA tool (CarbonScope), a building LCA tool (BuildingScope), and a resource flow analysis tool (MetaFlowScope). ). All of the software is web-based and written in C# for ASP.NET. The database format is currently Access (easily changeable to SQL).

These software and database components can be licensed non-exclusively or purchased with exclusive rights. In both cases, the transaction will include source code for the software,  plus rights to use the technology as is, build derivative products and sub-license to others in any form. Individual components can also be licensed separately (examples: any of the LCA tools along with the LCI database; only the LCI data for food/agriculture; etc.). All technology components will be delivered "as is", with appropriate warranties. The cost and other terms are negotiable.
