Title: Translate Points to Impact Measurments
Post by: Luca on January 23, 2019, 14:21
Hi everyone,

for a project I used the LCIA "Damage to ecosystem, ReCiPe Endpoint (E,A) w/o LT". Now I know that my impact is 0.02points. How can I translate this to something more tangible?

If I am not wrong you determine the impact of damage to ecosystem with species lost per m². Could someone clarify this and tell me what I have to do?

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Luca

Dear Luca,

the results of the LCIA endpoint methods are the sum of different midpoint results. Each midpoint is calculated with a weighting factor to a point impact. If you want to determine specific categories, you should use a midpoint impact category.

For further information, have a look into https://sites.google.com/site/lciarecipe/project-definition
