ecoinvent Database Training Programs

Why ecoinvent Training is Needed?

Understanding the Database’s Depth: Ecoinvent is vast and complex. Proper training helps you:

  • Increased Accuracy of an LCA study: Training leads to better dataset selection and more accurate modeling, strengthening the reliability of your LCA results.
  • Enhanced Decision-Making: A deeper understanding of the data helps you identify environmental impact hotspots, leading to more informed decisions about product design, supply chain optimization, and sustainability strategies.
  • Credibility: Proper utilization of ecoinvent lends credibility to your LCA studies, improving their acceptance by stakeholders.
  • Time Efficiency: Training reduces errors and streamlines your LCA process, saving you time and effort in the long run.
  • Leverage Excel for LCA Analysis: Learn to convert ecoinvent data into Excel-compatible formats. Conduct simplified LCA studies or additional calculations directly within the familiar spreadsheet environment.
  • Professional Development: Builds your competence as an LCA practitioner, potentially leading to professional opportunities.
    • methodologies behind the data.
    • Interpret results accurately within the context of an LCA study.

    Maximizing Data Accuracy: Ecoinvent offers several system models (Allocation at the Point of Substitution (APOS), Consequential, and Cut-off system models) for handling complex scenarios or real-world case studies. Training helps you:

    • Learn the nuances of these models.
    • Choose the most appropriate model for your specific LCA, leading to more reliable results.

    Integration with LCA Software: Most LCA practitioners use specialized software like SimaPro, openLCA, or LCA for Experts (GaBi). Learning how to use the database is important as it is common among all the leading LCA software vendors. Training helps streamline your workflow and ensures that the data and analysis tools are compatible.

    Staying Current: Ecoinvent regularly updates its data and methodologies. Training ensures you:

    • Understand the latest developments in the database.
    • Know how to apply new datasets or versions to your work, maintaining the cutting-edge Accuracy of your LCA studies.
  • o ensure accurate and meaningful LCA results, ecoinvent training is crucial due to the following technical complexities of the database:

    • Understanding System Models:
    • Ecoinvent offers Allocation at the Point of Substitution (APOS), Consequential, and Cut-off system models. Each handles complex scenarios (like multi-output processes and recycling) differently.
    • Training teaches you to select the most appropriate model based on your LCA’s goals and scope, ensuring results align with your research/study questions. This is critical, as the choice of system model can drastically affect the outcomes.
    • Applying Industry-Specific Models:
    • Training helps you understand how to apply system models within specific industries (energy, waste, plastics, chemicals, etc.). Each sector may have unique modeling needs and common scenarios where a particular model of the system excels.
    • Distinguishing Unit and System Processes
    • Ecoinvent provides “Unit Processes” (representing individual steps) and “System Processes” (combining multiple steps).
    • Training clarifies when to use each type, ensuring you model the product system accurately within your LCA.
    • Utilizing Specialized Process Types:
    • Ecoinvent includes “Market Processes,” “Transformation Processes,” and “Infrastructure Processes.”
    • Training explains the distinctions between these process types and when to properly use them in different modeling scenarios.
    • Export and Analyze in Excel: Learn how to convert ecoinvent data into Excel-compatible formats for streamlined analysis and custom calculations within your LCA workflow.
    • Rigorous LCA Studies: Enhanced understanding of system models and process types leads to technically sound LCAs.
    • Informed Decision Making: The ability to accurately compare alternatives using the most suitable modeling approach empowers better choices.
    • Increased Confidence: Demonstrate mastery of eco invent’s complexities, boosting the credibility of your LCA results
ecoinvent Training Programs/Courses

An analytical LCA case study is also included. Select from the "Basic" or "Advanced" training packages.

About ecoinvent database: Over 18,000 Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) datasets (also called “activities” in ecoinvent). Used in over 40 countries, the world’s most well-known Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) database. The database includes energy, resource extraction, material supply, chemicals, metals, agriculture, waste management, and transportation. The ecoinvent database provides users with information on the environmental impact of their products and services. There are about 18000 activities in the repository, sometimes called “datasets,” which represent human processes or activities. It is a repository covering a wide range of global and regional areas.

The ecoinvent database gives users information on how their goods and services affect the environment. Users can track the influence of their items across the supply chain and comprehend the results. The repository contains roughly 18,000 activities, often known as “datasets,” that describe processes or activities. 

NEW!: UPDATED ecoinvent curriculum for all the training plans and the materials for all the plan series. A new plan, “ecoinvent Database Expert Training,” was introduced on February 14, 2024.

The short answer is “No”. You need to sign up for a one-level “plan.” Every plan begins at level ZERO and progresses to a certain level. Based on the comparison table below, you may choose the curriculum and the level you wish to attain. You may, however, sign up for two programs—one now and one later- at a discounted price.

  • After your payment is processed, we will send you a proposed training schedule.
  • Once you (or your team) approve the schedule, you will receive Zoom invitations via email and a calendar invite for each session.
  • Training will then begin as scheduled (on-demand).
