Use advice for data set
The users are invited to assess the suitability of the LCI in relation to the aims of their analysis, in particular on the following points: scope covered, possibility of application to product evaluated (as end-of-life management processes vary according to the product), geographical representativeness (processes may have different impacts and performance levels if an end-of-life product is handled in one or more countries with a regulatory framework or technology level different to France), possible allocation rules implemented.
Data set use approval
General comment
This dataset represents the end-of-life of Copper in Electrical Motors for industrial applications managed by the French Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) take-back schemes. It includes all management phases from the collection of WEEE at collection points to all final destinations reached by this material. In terms of the final destinations which consist of material or energy recovery operations, the data include only the environmental burdens.
LCI Method Principle
