Really interesting work and I thank you for it. We have recently done some LCA work on windows and have some data that may update the numbers you are using. May be too much detail, but very keen to support this work.

How would you recommend proceeding?

All the best,

Thanks for the encouragement.
I have just posted an update of this file with a new layer of sophistication in updating data used in calculations.
A student of mine solved the problem I struggled with. Nice.
I have been involved in developing CAPEM LCA method ( and and want to make a similar tool for LCA.
It only took a weekend to create this one so I am keen to do an LCA version.
Your data will be very welcome.
