Differences between ecoinvent 2 & 3

Differences between ecoinvent 2 & 3

Why can't I see production, supply and consumption mixes present in ecoinvent 2 in ecoinvent 3 anymore?

All production, consumption and supply mixes already present in ecoinvent version 2 were reviewed and edited if needed according to the ecoinvent version 3 methodology to ensure more consistency.


Many of these datasets formed the basis for their corresponding market activities. In addition, some production mixes are still supplied additionally. Some mixes were removed as they were no longer considered relevant with the availability of the market datasets. The correspondence file and the Change Report explain this in more detail.
