CarbonScopeData is a life-cycle inventory (LCI) database. It provides data on greenhouse gas emissions (embodied carbon), primary energy use (embodied energy) and water use (embodied/virtual water) for a broad array of raw materials used in the economy, common industrial processes, agricultural processes and food products, energy sources, transport modes, temperature-controlled storage, services and waste disposal. The database can be used for life-cycle modeling and analysis of products and services in manufacturing, building construction, transportation, packaging, food and agriculture, and many other industry sectors.

CarbonScopeDataconsists of two parts: process LCI and environmentally extended input-output LCI.

The process LCI portion of the database contains data for well over 1600 materials, products and processes representing a broad range of industries and geographical locations (and more are being added regularly), compiled from highly credible raw data sources and research literature and processed by our in-house tools according to rigorous LCA standards. This includes cradle-to-gate and unit process data for over 1100 products and processes in the food and agriculture sectors -- covering a full range of crop and animal production systems, commercial food processing, commercial cooking appliances, packaging, and waste disposal. The majority of the food/agriculture data is for US and Canadian production and processing drawn from over a dozen major agricultural states/provinces, making CarbonScopeData the largest commercially available LCI database for North American food production and processing. In addition, the database includes food production data for Europe and other parts of the world.

The environmentally extended input-output LCI portion of the database uses the US Environmental Protection Agency’s USEEIO v1.1 model and life cycle results per $1 (2013 USD) demand for all goods and services in the model based on producer prices. We will add further documentation here as we customize or enhance parts of this dataset.
