I use an Ecoinvent database, but I'm not capable to find flows and processes for DEHP. In fact, I need to evaluate a PVC which is plasticized with DEHP, but it is not included in PVC's process in my database. There are some others phtalates but not the one I need.

Do you know where I could find a suitable dataset?

Hi MarioV,

the process exist and its called 'dioctyl terephthalate production'. There is a small mix up with nomenclature. 2-ethylhexyl.. is considered as octyl. Hence, dioctyl is actually di(2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate.
