Hi,

We have just received the EuGeos database and I have made a quick comparison between EN15804 parameters and EuGeos. It appears that some have to be obtained indirectly but that`s not a real issue. The main issue is that there is no distinction between "Use of renewable secondary fuels (RSF; MJ net calorific value)" and "Use of non renewable secondary fuels (NRSF; MJ net calorific value)". I only find one parameter ("Use of secondary fuels (MJSF)"), that covers both renewalbe and non renewalbe, through the impact method "Material + Waste Indicators (EN15804)".

How can this issue be ressolved? Can this parameter be split in two?

kind regards,

Hi Thomas,
I will follow up with the data provider - as you probably are aware of, the database is not provided by us but by EuGeos.

Thank you Chris and Thomas for the interaction! As an update, the new database is meanwhile on Nexus.
