I use the EN15804_A2_2020 impact assessment method that I acquired from Eugeos 4.1 database to calculate the impacts of 1 kg of paint.

I am curious about the environmental indicator El water use, AWARE. Is the number I get equal with the WDP (Water Deprivation Potential) indicator that is required from EN 15804 for the creation of EPD for construction products. Or do I have to do some extra calculation to get the WDP number. In other words is El water use, AWARE = WDP ?

I am asking because the number that I get from the calculation of El water use, AWARE is really big and it does not correspond to the numbers published by other companies in the paint industry.

Thank you for your time.
