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.


Swiss municipal sanitary landfill for biogenic or untreated municipal waste ('reactive organic landfill'). Landfill gas and leachate collection system. Recultivation and monitoring for 150 years after closure.
