Description

Location: RER - Europe
This dataset represents the production of mecoprop (1 kg of active ingredient). Raw materials are modelled with a stoichiometric calculation. Energy consumption is modelled with data from a similar process. The emissions are estimated. Infrastructure is included with a default value.
[The full documentation of this dataset was originally provided in the corresponding ecoinvent report from the Swiss Centre for Life Cycle Inventories, which is accessible for free to guests and users of ecoinvent version 2 (https://www.ecoinvent.org/login-databases.html). The dataset may subsequently have been subjected to central changes to the database, as described in the respective change report for each new release.]
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

Mecoprop is a pesticide produced in three steps from phenol:
C6H6O + CH4O → C7H8O + H2O
C7H8O + Cl2 → C7H7ClO + HCl
C7H7ClO + C3H5ClO2 → C10H14ClO3 + HCl
A precursor that is used for the mecoprop production is 2-chloro-propionic acid (C3H5ClO2).
2-Chloro-propionic acid (C3H5ClO2) is produced from propionic acid and chlorine:
C3H6O2 + Cl2 → C3H5ClO2 + HCl
