The online available GFLI database is a collection of feed ingredient datasets collected through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The life cycle impact assessment is assessed through the ReCiPe 2016 midpoint (H) version 1.1 in SimaPro 9.0 and the Environmental Footprint 2.0 method. The system boundary depends on type of product (cultivated and processed), which is detailed in the process description in the file. Both formats include three allocation options: Economic (preferred method in Feed PEFCR), mass, and energy allocation. The full life cycle inventory assessment (LCIA) is the final product in its aggregated form.
Please consult the End User License Agreement (EULA), available during check-out and included in the download, for legal uses of the database. Keep in mind that the files are compressed into zip files so you need to unzip before using.
End of May 2021 the EFPRA finalized its data-in project about rendered animal by-products. Due to the interest for the datasets, they are made available in the download link below. When the GFLI database is updated this autumn, EFPRA’s datasets will be integrated into the GFLI database and will be available for download as part of the lifecycle inventory (LCI) and life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) formats.
