Please note: For an additional one-off fee, Educational Multi-User licenses can be registered with selected LCA software providers, who can activate access to ecoinvent data through their software. We suggest confirming such one-off fees with the software provider of your choice. If you are planning on using ecoinvent mainly through third-party software, you can consider purchasing the ecoinvent license directly with the software provider without the one-off fee.
