Useful tools to improve the LCA methodology

The CIRAIG has been involved in international collaborative projects contributing to the development and advancement of LCA methodology since 2001. 

Some of these key projects led to practical tools such as Open IO Canada and DynCO2, used by many LCA practitioners around the world. Other key projects led to international consensus on methodology, such as the Water Use in LCA (WULCA) project.

Finally, our key projects also aim to consistently improve data quality in life cycle inventory databases, such as the Quebec LCI Database project, and to improve the impact assessment phase of LCA with regionalization , such as Impact WORLD+.
