I have the chance to use an Ecoinvent database, but I can just find some flows and processes for foam polyurethane and nothing for TPU. Do you know where I could find a useful dataset?

Hi MarioV,

indeed. There seems to be no data set for TPU in ecoinvent. If you use Nexus to look for TPU, you will see that the EF 3.1 database actually has TPU (https://nexus.openlca.org/search/query=TPU). And interestingly, this dataset  was generated by ecoinvent.
I guess, you have to model it yourself then.
