Over 3.500 products and processes
Since its release in 2014, Agri-footprint has been used for many interesting applications, from labelling schemes to product design tools. The recent update leads towards a database containing 3,500 products and processes for agricultural LCAs, from crops to animal production systems and background processes. Many products are available for various countries and regions worldwide. Furthermore, three pre-defined allocation options are offered: mass, energy and economic. Agri-footprint offers users a wide range of agriculture-specific impact categories such as water use and land use. Moreover, new land use change statistics are fully integrated.
Compliant with latest initiatives and methodologies
Agri-footprint 2.0 methodology and data quality are compliant with the latest initiatives and methodologies, such as ILCD and ReCiPe. The methodology and data quality have been reviewed by RIVM (Dutch national institute for public health and the environment). The future ambitions for Agri-footprint are focussed on the integration of USDA agricultural LCI Data, fruits and vegetables.
