ecoinvent version 3 is yearly updated. With the fifth update, which was released in August 2018, over 2'000 new and updated datasets were added for aquaculture and fish capture, waste treatment, aluminium, hard coal, pulp and containerboard.
New & Updated Data
The ecoinvent 3 database offers new and updated datasets in the fields of electricity production, wood sector, recycling activities, chemical production, fruit and vegetables, and many other sectors.
Consistent modelling of water inputs and outputs throughout the whole database for impact of water use and consumption make it easier to conduct water footprinting analysis.
