Hello,

I am working on food products with Exiobase and would like to know if packaging is included in the Exiobase processes or should be modelled separately. There is no description in OpenLCA and I wasn't able to find a clear answer on the Exiobase website.

Apologies if this question is not relevant.

Many Thanks.

Hi Sidonie,

indeed, this is not really documented I think, but the exiobase database prices are market prices, which should cover the marketable product, including packaging.

Maybe someone else can add, thank you!

Dear Andreas,

Thank you very much for your answer, this does make sense.
