This database of environmental flow coefficients has been compiled to assist in the quantification of embodied (indirect) flows associated with construction projects. Coefficients have been produced for the following flows:
- greenhouse gas emissions
- material resources
The coefficients represent the quantity of a certain flow (e.g. energy) associated with (or embodied in) the production of a certain material (i.e. also known as a material's embodied enegy in this case).
Coefficients can be multiplied by available material quantities extracted as part of a bill of materials to determine the embodied flows for a particular construction project.
These coefficients have been compiled using a path exchange hybrid approach, utilising best available process and input-output data. Further details about their compilation can be found in the associated report.
Latest database and report will be uploaded shortly.
