Unable to find datasets
« on: November 10, 2013, 14:33 »
Hello,

I'm having issues with finding the following activities/products in Umberto NXT LCA, using ecoinvent 3.0:

- inkjet printing
- server (e.g. web server, database server)
- tablet computer
- waste treatment of keyboard
- waste treatment of pointing device, optical mouse, with cable

I would appreciate if you could give me any suggestions/comments/inputs.

Thanking you in advance.

With kind regards,

Hello,

there are several data sets for:

- Printing Ink, but they may refer to offset printing.
- Laptop computers, several desktop computers with or without screens.
It might be that there are not yet data for tablets available.

The waste treatment activities are more general and not that specific.

There are datasets for waste related to electronic equipment.

- market for waste electric and electronic equipment waste electric and electronic equipment    
- market for waste plastic, consumer electronics
- market for waste plastic, industrial electronics

You can use the search function of Umberto NXT LCA to find datasets appropriate for your study or you also may search online on www.ecoinvent.org to also see the full documentation. Searching online might be a good option.

Kind regards,
Martina

Thanks a lot for the quick reply and the suggestions!

Yes, the printing ink is referring to offset printing. I couldn't find a dataset for inktjet printing.

Thanks for your help. I will try to use the online search function.

With kind regards,
