The LCA Commons is a digital home for the aggregation, description, and standardization of LCA data. Our most-used resource is the Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) database, which is based on the openLCA schema, and a DKAN data catalog and archive. DKAN is an open source, open data platform with a full suite of cataloging, publishing, and visualization features that allow organizations to easily share data with the public. Therefore, users may submit and access LCA-related data that are not necessarily formatted for an inventory database.
