Data are derived from the Eco-profiles of the European plastics industry (PlasticsEurope). Not included are the values reported for: recyclable wastes, amount of air / N2 / O2 consumed, unspecified metal emission to air and to water, mercaptan emission to air, unspecified CFC/HCFC emission to air, dioxin to water. The amount of "sulphur (bonded)" is assumed to be included into the amount of raw oil.
[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.
