Description

Location: CH - Switzerland
The module reflects an absorption chiller operated with heat from a natural gas operated cogeneration unit (allocation exergy). Life time for the total system assumed with 20 years or 20'000 full operating hours.
[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 (https://www.ecoinvent.org/login-databases.html). 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.

Technology

Single stage absorption chiller with 100 kW cooling capacity connected to a 250 kW hybrid air cooler. Seasonal performance factor (SPF) of 0.6. Supply temperature of the chilled water 6°C. Operated with heat of a temperature of 85- 100°C.
