EcodEX™ follows multi criteria approach to evaluate the impact of your products:
- Global Warming Potential
- Energy Use
- Land Use
- Water Consumption
- Solid Waste
- Package to Weight Ratio*
*Added environmental indicators
EcodEX allows one to compare various options and perform simulations to determine the optimal improvement to a product.
This brings the benefit of being able to simulate changes to products, for example:
- Simulate changes in the packaging of a product
- Simulate changes in the ingredients of a recipe
- Simulate changes in the manufacturing process
- Simulate supplier or other sourcing changes, like geography or agricultural practices
EcodEX includes the industry-standard, ISO 14040-certified EcoSpold database from ecoinvent.
The database contains more than 4,000 processes and raw materials. Additional databases are also available from third parties, integrated into our tool.
You can also import data from other LCA software systems (SimaPro, Gabi, OpenLCA, etc.) using the EcoSpold supported format.
Ability to Evaluate Thousands of Products Quickly in a Single Step
You can easily evaluate the environmental impact of an entire portfolio of products.
Rapid View Analysis
Explore results with dynamic charts and drill-down details.
Provides dynamic, data-driven visualization technology.
EcodEX has been designed to be easy-to-use for non-LCA experts. The integrated wizards guide you through each step, allowing you to save the evaluation scenario analysis. With little training, a user can begin creating scenarios for product analysis within minutes, compared to weeks required for traditional LCA analysis. User-friendly interfaces speed time to production and allow LCA experts to quickly access the information.
Processes can easily be rerun for future updates, speeding time-to-production.
