The latest update of the ecoinvent version 2.2 database was released in 2010.
The ecoinvent version 2.2 database includes international industrial life cycle inventory data on energy supply, resource extraction, material supply, chemicals, metals, agriculture, waste management services, and transport services.
In 2013 ecoinvent released ecoinvent 3, its third major release in its long history. The ecoinvent version 3 database builds on ecoinvent 2.2 and therefore includes all datasets of the previous version whilst also containing numerous new and updated datasets. The latest version of the database is based on a new methodology and gives the users the choice of different system models.
