Refers to 1 kg N, resp. 1 kg P2O5 in ammonium nitrate phosphate with a N-content of 8.4% and a P2O5-content of 52.0%. The multioutput-process 'ammonium nitrate phosphate, at regional storehouse' delivers the co-products 'ammonium nitrate phosphate, as N, at regional storehouse' and 'ammonium nitrate phosphate, as P2O5, at regional storehouse'. Allocation factors are based on the energy requirements of the respective nutrients for the production processes: 48% for 'ammonium nitrate phosphate, as P2O5, at regional storehouse' and 52% for 'ammonium nitrate phosphate, as N, at regional storehouse' (exceptions see report). The allocated inventories must always be used simultaneously.
[The full documentation of this dataset was originally provided in the corresponding ecoinvent report from the Swiss Centre for Life Cycle Inventories, which is accessible for free to guests and users of ecoinvent version 2 ( The dataset may subsequently have been subjected to central changes to the database, as described in the respective change report for each new release.]
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.


Production inventory was derived from detailed literature studies and specifications from the manufacturer, relevant for the European production. Transport specifications of the fertiliser product to the regional department store, which were not included in the reference used for this inventory, were complemented by data given in Patyk & Reinhardt (1997).
