Description

Location: CA-QC - Canada, Québec
This dataset represents the service of mixing and then pumping 1 m3 liquid slurry (1 t) from farm pit into tanker (average capacity 24.7 m3), and spreading the slurry onto field (low height nozzle spraying). Slurry production and any emission from slurry are not included.
None
Child dataset exchanges scaled from GLO parent dataset based on diesel consumption in Quebec. Created to proxy farm machinery/fieldwork representative of the Quebec context. Data quality indicators adjusted accordingly. Other difference with the parent dataset is the production volume, which now represents the production volume in Quebec.
Diesel consumption is calculated from primary data and models from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) published in 2006 and might be representative of more recent technology than the GLO parent dataset.
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

Emissions by the newest models of tractors set into operation during the period from 1999 to 2001.
