ICE DATABASE

ICE DATABASE
About:


Whilst LCA seems to be a step too far for most people I know; embodied energy, embodied carbon and sequestered carbon are issues they can comprehend and want to address.

Some ready made collections of data exist but because the data is usually extracted from LCA and LCA has long been inconsitent the older data is likely to be inconsistent with itslef and with the newer data, and the resulting information has been used by others as if equal or abused by the unscrupulouse.

ICE database is a collection of inconsistantly created LCA extracted data on Embodied Energy and Embodied Carbon, so it will remain an unreliable source.

Its inconsistent but for a long time it was the only source.

The data is also delivered in different formats for different material or compomnent formats, most by per m3 and some by area (e.g. windows)

So the information needs to be put into a spreadsheet and used in different calculations for them to be totaled at element or building level.
