This dataset represents the supply of 1 kg of printing ink, rotogravure, without solvent, in 55% toluene solution state from activities that produce it within the geography RER.
A regional market for Europe [RER] is motivated by the low share (in the range of 3.4%-5.3% of total trade quantities between 2010-2016) of import quantities to EU28 from outside (excluding Norway and Switzerland) the Union. In addition, the export quantities exceeded the import quantities (the ratio export/import was in the range of 5.64-8.16 in the same period). Source: Eurostat database, EU trade since 1988 by HS6 (DS-016893), HS6-code: 321519 - PRINTING INK, WHETHER OR NOT CONCENTRATED OR SOL…, Assessed on: 2017-11-28.
The transport amounts are based on eurostat transport statistics for 2016 (, extracted on the 2018-06-01). See exchange comments for additional details.
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.


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:…
