Service Introduction

What We offer?

We evaluate the environmental impacts and benefits of a product’s manufacturing processes, products, services, and technologies considering raw materials extraction as well as energy composition. These calculations are done on every phase of the lifecycle in which a process has an impact or benefit: production stages for instance will be assessed by looking at how much resources were used during each step; transportation is also important since that's where waste products end up once they're no longer needed or useful. We evaluate the lifecycle from cradle to grave which also includes the use and disposal phases. We conduct one of these LCA studies: "Screening LCA", (2)"Product Screening, and (3) "Comparative LCA".

What Makes Our LCA Services Stand Out?
  • – DEISO expertise is vast and deep in LCA, with 12+ years of experience in the industries and academia The experts have extensively used LCA databases like ecoinvent as well as Japanese IDEA database, GaBi Professional Database (and all GaBi's databases extensions of a total of 10,000+ processes).
  • – Also, with other databases developed for American, Australian, or European countries. Our team conducts literature reviews whenever necessary on client projects based on our clients' requirements; these include academic papers and industrial reports.
  • – We conduct any of the three types of LCA: screening, product, or comparative LCA. We consider the entire supply chain. A part of the life cycle of the product or technology or the entire life cycle based on the client's requirements or requests.
  • – Full documentation and reports of the results of our LVCA study including methods, data, results, recommendations, etc.
  • – Full fluency with LCA software (GaBi ts, SimaPro, openLCA, and MiLCA, and MS-Excel). We design the system background of all processes of inputs and outputs regardless of the industry we work in.
  • – Estimation of lacking emission factors unavailable in commercial databases. We conduct additional analyses: uncertainty, sensitivity, parameter, analyses, and scenario development.

Our Core Services

Learn More

We provide several business services of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The slides below provide an overall view of LCA’s concept and the advantages of conducting an LCA assessment for industries, companies, or businesses.

  1. Conducting a partial LCA study, e.g., measuring the climate change impact (the Global Warming Potential; GWP) of your product, technology, or service.
  2. Conducting a complete LCA study: E.g., measuring up to 10 environmental-related issues such as ecotoxicity, human toxicity, ozone layer depletion potential, GWP, etc.
  3. Conducting a comprehensive LCA study: The comprehensive LCA study here is referred to as cradle-to-gate evaluation, including extraction of raw materials, production, packaging, transportation, use, and the end-of-life phase (disposal, which might be, e.g., landfilling or recycling, incineration).
  4. Conducting a partial or complete LCA study on the specific phase of the product’s life cycle or the technology, the product, or the service offered to your customers. E.g., the production phase or the waste management one.
  5. An End-Point LCA study can be offered for a complete or comprehensive LCA. The previous LCA-based services are an evaluation at a mid-point level. At an end-point level, the mid-point environmental issues can be aggregated into end-point impacts, such as measuring the damage to the ecosystem, human health, and climate change.
  6. Conducting a gate-based LCA study, partially or wholly: cradle-to-gate, gate-to-gate, gate-to-grave, or cradle-to-grave.
  7. LCA training on the method: The LCA methodology, approaches, data-related, applications, etc.
  8. Consulting: regarding data requirements, data gaps, and database recommendations for your project or evaluation study (what are the suitable databases for your project for evaluation).
  9. LCA Training: Full training courses, sessions, seminars, or workshop-based.
Below are some examples of the measured environmental issues (environmental themes or environmental loads):

  • Fossil depletion
  • Freshwater ecotoxicity
  • Freshwater eutrophication
  • Human toxicity
  • Ionizing radiation
  • Marine ecotoxicity
  • Metal depletion
  • Natural land transformation
  • Ozone depletion
  • Particulate matter formation
  • Photochemical oxidant -formation
  • Terrestrial acidification
  • Terrestrial ecotoxicity
  • Urban land occupation
  • Agricultural land occupation
  • 12+ years of experience in LCA, LCA data, and state-of-the-art LCA software.
  • Up-to-date knowledge of recent development and applications of LCA based on peer-reviewed academic literature from high-profile and impactful journals.
  • We have the expertise and deep knowledge of LCA within industry and academia.
  • We have extensive knowledge of LCA databases such as ecoinvent, the Japanese IDEA database, GaBi professional database, all GaBi’s extension databases for all the industries they are developed for, the American, Australian, and European as well all other well-known databases.
  • We conduct literature reviews whenever they are necessary for the client projects including academic papers and industrial reports.
  • At the core of the LCA is data, known as Life Cycle Inventory (LCA) data. Depending on the industry, we are able to deal with missing data for a particular process with different techniques.
  • We have a great deal of knowledge of LCI databases. Therefore, we use this knowledge to carefully consider how each database or process dataset matches our client project. In addition, we examine the system boundaries of each LCI dataset, as this has a significant impact on the results of an LCA study. Inappropriate use of a dataset may lead to overestimation or down estimation. Therefore, human experience is more important than LCA software in such cases. Although we use the appropriate LCA software according to the type of project and the necessary LCI databases.
  • We perform additional analyses for final results based on our clients’ preferences, including Monte Carlo simulation (uncertainty analysis), sensitivity analysis, parameter analysis, and scenario development.
  • In some cases, the use of the LCL itself is not enough to fully assess a technology or production process or to compare different technologies or products. Consequently, we conduct other analyses outside of the LCA. We employ sustainability methods needed to answer our customers’ big questions about their technologies.
  • We conduct LCAs at business, technology, Local, regional, and global levels. We consider the impacts, including extraction and use of raw materials; production processes, products, or services; recycling activities and facilities; and waste collections and disposal methods such as landfilling, incineration, and bio-gasification.
  • We support technology developers in the production process, production analysis, and technology development with environmental and environmental health considerations in mind.
  • We support the use of LCA software for companies: advice, planning, and training. LCA software includes GaBi ts, SimaPro, openLCA, MiLCA, and other assessment-specific LCA software used for waste management, buildings, and construction.
  • Support for Eco-labels and Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for products using our LCA expertise.
  • Fully use the LCA to help companies and industries ensure the viability of their strategic development.
  • Use LCA to shift from a linear economy to a circular economy (to support economic circularity).
  • We provide Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data services. We estimate LCI data that is not available in the LCI commercial databases or literature. We do this to help LCA experts, businesses, and researchers conduct an LCA evaluation for their purposes (READ MORE).
  • We are also developing our LCA tools and software (READ MORE).
