Hello,

 

If I want to model the use of secondary copper, which material do I use form ecoinvent?

Dear Nadine, 

 

To see the activities contributing to a market, you can consult the activity itself on the ecoinvent website or the software you are using (from the way the activity name is written, I believe you are using SimaPro). If you look at the market composition, you will see for example the contribution of the activity "treatment of copper scrap by electrolytic refining".

Dear Nadine, 

 

You can look at the product "copper scrap, sorted, pressed".
