Title: Calcium carbonate > 63 microns; Production; at plant (Location: EU-27)


Specific data collection and process modelling were performed in accordance with ISO 14040 and 14044 series. Process-related data were collected on 8 mineral production sites located in 6 European countries + Turkey. The data were then consolidated by process stage (horizontal aggregation). The resulting LCI calculation is based on the calcium carbonate (>63 microns) 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 + Turkey. Other upstream data are based on global averages. For modelling and other upstream processes and materials, the DEAM database has been used. The TEAM software has been used to generate this ELCD data set for calcium carbonate (> 63 microns).
