An approach to determine missing life cycle inventory data for chemicals (RREM)

Life cycle assessments of chemicals and products containing them are often not possible due to missing life cycle inventory data. Therefore, the department of Sustainable Engineering has developed an approach that can be applied to fill the data gaps. By modeling the synthesis reaction and linking it to existing life cycle inventory data sets, the environmental impact of chemicals can be estimated. In addition to the approach, the environmental profile of 60 chemicals has been published.
