The GFLI is conceived as a long-term organisation. The initial phase of the GFLI has started in a project mode, with the financial support of the feed companies and associations, which have decided to become GFLI members. The EU Project Steering Group will deliver its data to the GFLI by the end of 2016. The USA/Canada Project Steering will deliver its data to the GFLI by the end of 2017.
During the 2016-2017 period, the GFLI will deliver:
- A public LCA database with high quality secondary data covering cultivation, processing and logistics for feed ingredients; as a module to support environmental assessment of livestock products.
- A feed LCA tool, primarily destined to feed companies, for identification of environmental hotspots, training and education. The tool will be built on the Feedprint tool previously developed in the Netherlands.
