United States National Life Cycle Inventory Database Project: A Status Report 2005-01-0852

The National Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database Project, initiated about three years ago, is intended to be a resource for peer reviewed, at no cost, publicly available, web served LCI information. The Vehicle Recycling Partnership (VRP) of USCAR co-initiated this project with the Athena Sustainable Materials Institute and has been working steadily to date on providing LCI modules for the database. Athena International now manages the project. The purposes of this presentation are two-fold: 1) to provide an overview of contributed VRP modules, and 2) to give a status report on the National LCI/DB Project as a whole. Who is participating and what they are providing are also discussed as is the scope of the project and a request for additional involvement in data module development.
