The latest update of ÖKOBAUDAT database is now available in for openLCA.

This database is the mandatory database for the Assessment System for Sustainable Building in Germany (Bewertungssystem Nachhaltiges Bauen, BNB). Datasets are provided for various building products, and are meant to fulfil requirements of the EN15804 and beyond. The database contains Environmental Product Declarations, EPDs. The idea is that the database can support preparation of life cycle assessments for entire constructions.

In our documentation, aside from explaining the preparation of the database for openLCA, we also evaluate how prepared the database is to be integrated in openLCA, and comment on the flaws of the database.

To read more about the database and its implementation in openLCA, look at our documentation: /wp-content/uploads/2024/07/OKOBAUDAT-in-openLCA.pdf
