Inventory for regional market of refined petroleum product, encompassing the distribution to the final consumer (household, road vehicle, power plant, etc.) including all necessary transports. This regional market activity was created as a copy of the corresponding datasets for Europe without Switzerland in ecoinvent v3.4 (2017). The type and amount of all exchanges have been left unmodified, but the uncertainty information has been adjusted accordingly. The original dataset was already contained in the ecoinvent database version 2, and it was not individually updated during the transfer to ecoinvent version 3.
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.


Comment found in the corresponding dataset for Europe without Switzerland in ecoinvent v3.4 (2017): Distribution of petroleum products.
This dataset represents a market activity in the ecoinvent database. A market activity is an activity that does not transform inputs, but simply transfers a specific intermediate exchange (i.e. products, including wastes and by-products) from supplying transforming activities to other transforming activities that demand this intermediate exchange as an input, e.g. from glycerine at the supplier to glycerine at the consumer. A market dataset collects all activities with the same reference product in a certain geographical region. Furthermore, it typically includes average transport requirements for that product within the geography in question, as well as inputs of the product itself to cover any losses in trade and transport. In other words, market activities are generally intended to represent consumption mixes of a given product in a certain geographical region. For more information:…
