  • 2017-09-26 pdf WorldSteel EoL recycling formula explained – tool These slides provide a simple explanation of the WorldSteel EoL recycling formula, a (possibly common) misinterpretation, and a suggestion for a more simple formula (and procedure) that is less likely to lead to misinterpretations.
  • 2016-07-28 xlsx Irrigation water withdrawal pr crops – data

    This file contains two ways of distributing the Aquastat data for "Irrigation water withdrawal" over crops: According to irrigated crop area and according to irrigated area-time. The file also contains a data example explaining the theoretical basis.

  • 2016-03-30 zip Macro for hybrid LCA (CSVmaker) – tool CSVmaker: macro that converts tables in Excel to SimaPro CSV-import file. The macro facilitates the construction of life cycle inventories (LCI) in Excel in a standardised table format that can easily be converted into a CSV file that can be imported in SimaPro 8. The management of LCI data in Excel is useful for the modelling of complex foreground systems as well as when creating and modifying LCI databases (process, input-output and hybrid databases). The macro works for Excel in Windows as well as Mac. A poster included in the zip-file explains the procedure.
  • 2016-03-30 pdf Manual for CSVmaker – tool
    This is manual describes how to use our CSVmaker, which enables direct transfer of LCI data from Excel to SimaPro. The CSVmaker is available to members of our Exercutive Club.
  • 2015-08-31 pdf Methodology report – tool Consolidated Energy Club report documenting the methodology and inventory data which has been produced as part of the Energy Club initiative to date. Included is also a manual for importing and using the electricity datasets in SimaPro with ecoinvent v3.

Different scenarios can be activated by using a switch: e1 = 1 => ecoinvent default consequential mix, e2 = 1 => marginal future scenario (recommended scenario), and e3 = 1 => marginal historical scenario. Before importing and using the file, please read the ‘Energy club readme’ file.

  • 2010-05-18 xls more info Marginal electricity worldwide – tool Estimation of marginal electricity in all regions in the World: Excel sheet for calculation of marginal electricity in different regions in the World. The marginal source of electricity is identified in proportion with the expected growth rate of each source (coal, gas, wind, hydro etc.) according to the IEA energy outlook 2008. The identification of affected sources of electricity also also includes exclusion of constrained sources. The methodology is described in chapter 6 and appendix 4 in Schmidt and Thrane (2009), Life cycle assessment of aluminium production in new Alcoa smelter in Greenland. Government of Greenland.
