Description

Location: CA-QC - Canada, Québec
The dataset represents the construction of the brick production facility in Quebec in the period 1954-2029.
Specific data for the annual production and estimations for the land use were collected from the only producer of brick (made from shale) in Quebec, for the year 2012.
The average yearly production volume of brick shale is 66'957 t and the lifetime of the site is estimated to 75 years,
Total land occupation: 344'3263 m²; about 12'000 m² building hall, 5'000 m² paved roads, 25'000 m² vegetation and the balance is considered as industrial area.
Assumed weight of machines taken from clay pit construction ecoinvent (v3) dataset: 2'000t and service life estimated to 50 years.
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.
