Title: PCC dry;Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) - dry, uncoated, with a CaCO3 content of 98% or more, a median particle size ranging typically from 1 to 3 µm, ready to be shipped either in bulk or bags. Production at plant.;Production at plant;None (Location: RER)

Description

Specific data collection and process modelling were performed in accordance with ISO 14040 and 14044 series. Process related data were collected on 14 PCC production sites located in 7 European countries + Norway + Turkey. The data were then consolidated by process stage (horizontal aggregation). The resulting LCI calculation is based on the dry PCC production process route and corresponds to generic industry screening results. The electricity model used for the project is representative of the average production of the 27 European countries + Norway + Turkey. Other upstream data are based on European averages. For modelling and other upstream processes and materials, the Gabi 6.3.1.14 (PE International) database was used whenever possible and the Ecoinvent 2.2 database as second choice. The Gabi 6.3.1.14 software has been used to generate this ELCD data set for PCC dry.

Synonyms: Dry PCC

Technical Purpose: PCC dry is used as :
- filler or coating agent in paper
- filler ...
