Description

Location: DE - Germany
technical drying by heat from liquid gas (natural gas used as proxy). It is assumed that there is wastewater but as no data is available it is not included. The lifespan of the plant is assumed to be 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.

Technology

The raw materials (clay and straw) are mixed with water and poured into a mould. The drying process is technical with the use of a natural gas heater
