Life Cycle Tool Software

 openLCA

  • Developed by GreenDelta, an independent sustainable development consulting and software company based in Berlin, Germany, openLCA is an open-source Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software introduced in 2006. It features a wide range of functionalities and diverse databases. Recommended by the U.S. government, its user base spans the academic sector, government agencies, and the corporate sector. Originally, openLCA was designed for modeling and calculation of environmental life cycle assessments, but it can also be extended for the life cycle assessments of products and economics.

  • openLCA is a standalone software that can operate without an internet connection. Currently, it supports operating systems like Windows, Mac, and Linux. Furthermore, openLCA can collaborate well with web-based database forms and connect with local databases to update data or models. This allows its widespread application in areas like carbon footprint, water footprint, Life Cycle Costing (LCC), and Design for Environment (DfE).

  • Using openLCA, you can perform a complete LCA across Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms, as it's a high-performance open-source LCA software. Data is at the heart of LCA, and openLCA provides a comprehensive collection of databases and datasets for widely available LCA software. Some can be purchased, while others are free. Databases can be searched on the U.S. government website (most are paid), and the South Korean government also collaborates with openLCA to construct a national-level LCA computation and database center.

  • openLCA是由GreenDelta(是一家位於德國柏林的獨立可持續發展諮詢和軟件公司)於2006年開發的開放原始碼生命週期評估(LCA)軟體;具備廣泛的功能和多元化的資料庫。美國政府機關建議使用,眾多使用者包含學術界、政府機關、企業部門等;原始的openLCA設計宗旨在於環境生命週期評估的建模及計算,然而它亦可延伸應用於產品、經濟等生命週期之評估。 

  • openLCA是單機版軟體,在不連接網路之下亦可運作,目前支援的作業系統包含Windows、Mac和Linux。此外,openLCA亦可與web-based形態的資料庫良好的協作,並可與本機端的資料庫連結進行數據或模型的更新,使其可廣泛應用在碳足跡、水足跡、生命週期成本法(Life Cycle Costing;LCC)和環境設計(Design for Environment;DfE)等領域。

  • 使用 openLCA,您可以跨 Windows、macOS 和 Linux 平台執行完整的 LCA,因為它也是一個高性能的開源 LCA 軟件。由於數據是 LCA 的核心,openLCA 為廣泛可用的 LCA 軟件提供了全面的數據庫和數據集集合;有些可以購買,有些是免費的。在美國政府網站可搜查一些數據庫來源(大部分要付費),韓國政府也和openLCA合作建構國家級LCA運算和數據庫中心。
