This dataset is part of the Agribalyse v3.0 database, which is currently available in SimaPro and openLCA native formats.

[This dataset was already contained in the AGRIBALYSE 1.3 database. It was not individually updated during the transfer to AGRIBALYSE 2.0. Therefore, the method and models used can differ from other AGRIBALYSE 2.0 productions. Life Cycle Impact Assessment results may still have changed, as they are affected by changes in the supply chain, i.e. in other datasets. This dataset was generated following the AGRIBALYSE 1.3 quality guidelines. It may have been subject to central changes described in the AGRIBALYSE change report.]

Remark: Status of LCI: AGRIBALYSE V1.4 (Unpublished) February 2019 - supporting LCI (based on the project ECOALIM).
