Update supplement to the Eurobitume LCI report available

Europe |

Eurobitume has completed specific updates to its cradle-to-gate Life-Cycle Inventory (LCI) Report, Version 3.1, with revised shipping data that incorporates IMO 2020 regulations, 2018 and 2019 data from IOGP for crude oil extraction, and life-cycle impact assessments of the EN 15804: 2012 + A1: 2013 and EN 15804: 2012 + A2: 2019 + AC: 2021 environmental impact indicators.

The main impacts of these updates, which are detailed in a supplementary document are:

Limited changes in CO2 and CH4 emission data and suspended solid and hydrocarbon emissions to water

Changes to ozone depletion

Decrease in SO2 emissions and the acidification of terrestrial and freshwater

These updates are available in a supplementary document and should be used in conjunction with the 2020 Eurobitume LCI Report Version 3.1.

A complete inventory in a SimaPro.csv format, suitable for use by LCI/LCA practitioners, is available from Eurobitume and can be requested by sending an email to info@eurobitume.eu.
