Europe |

Eurobitume’s new Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) report has been published and provides important life cycle data for the paving grade bitumens most widely used in Europe, enabling calculation of the environmental impact of manufacturing end-products that incorporate bitumen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new Eurobitume LCI incorporates the latest bitumen LCI data and adopts an updated refinery methodology to reflect current thinking. The data sources it draws upon are all publicly available and the data in this edition will be made available in an Excel file that is compatible with commercial LCI software – making it easy for LCI practitioners to incorporate the data as part of a construction product life cycle assessment. The LCI database can be requested by sending an email to viviane.dupont(at)eurobitume.eu.

The importance of access to credible, authoritative, current data for each of the four main cradle-to-gate life cycle stages of bitumen - Oil extraction, Transport, Refining and Storage - is important for calculating the environmental impact of manufacturing end-products that incorporate bitumen.
