Hi,

I would like to know which free databases are the best for the assessment of the plastics circularity in China?

Some data that I need from the database are water, electricity, VOCs, Color Masterbatch and so on.

I can see the following free databases on the website of Nexus OpenLCA that I can download and use within OpenLCA:

IMPACT World

Environmental Footprints

OzLCI2019

exiobase

ARVI

Agribalyse

NEEDS

ELCD

BioenergieDAT

OpenLCA LCIA Methods

Best regards,

Emma
