Description

Location: CH - Switzerland
This module can be used for all different kind of glass wool mats. The density of the glass wool mat used as basis for the study is 40 kg/m3.
The original dataset from ecoinvent v2 has been ammended with CO2 and NOx emissions.
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

The company worked on a very high technical level but the data refer to the situation before 1995. The energy for the melting process is mainly electricity and from natural gas. The amount of waste glass used as raw material is about 65%.
