AusLCI (V1.38) Construction Carbon Emissions Factors V1Untitled

The AusLCI Carbon Emissions Factors contains emissions data in kg CO2e for the AusLCI database. Data is included for several different impact assessment methods.

A set of emission factors for the construction sector was released in May 22, including genuine AusLCI data and selected emission factors from the shadow database. The shadow database is used to support gaps in AusLCI data.

The shadow database is an Australianised version of the Ecoinvent 2.2 database based on typical European/global practice but where all input flows have been changed to AusLCI where process data is available - for example, all electricity, transport, natural gas, etc. are changed to Australian inputs as well as any material data.

Select a 'Climate change - CN' value corresponding to material selection to use this database.
