ICT for LCA and Material Flow Analysis
The BioEnergieDat project had been carried out by a consortium of German research organizations for the German Ministry of Environment as one important part of the German Sustainable Biomass Strategy. The main goals of the project were the development of a comprehensive database of LCI data sets describing important Bioenergy process chains in a flexible and customizable way and the development of an associated open source software infrastructure for LCA modelling of Bioenergy technologies for German framework conditions. One of the main requirements of the project was that the provided data sets can be used in different LCA modelling situations and shouldn t restrict users to only one usage context, i.e. performing only a certain type of LCA study. Therefore, new methodological approaches and enhancements to the underlying data set model / format had also to be developed and implemented to fulfil these requirements. Both, the tool environment developed in BioEnergieDat for LCA modelling of bioenergy technologies and key IT-aspects to support the new modelling approaches are described in further detail.
