Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) with professional software

Product life cycle in a graphical model

Comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment at its best

Umberto NXT LCA supports ISO compliant Life Cycle Assessments and Footprints. Thanks to the graphical modelling you quickly get a clear overview of your product life cycle. Based on that model you perform reliable calculations of your product's environmental impacts with just a few clicks.

Excellent usability of our LCA software is a high priority for us: Functions such as the simple transfer of models through Copy & Paste and the Undo/Redo feature facilitate your daily work of conducting a life cycle analysis.

Select datasets from the ecoinvent or GaBi LCI database and just drag them into your LCA model

Integrated ecoinvent and GaBi databases

The background data forms the backbone of any successful Life Cycle Assessment. More than 11.500 datasets from the ecoinvent 3.2 LCI database and 7.000 more in 20 GaBi LCI databases are available in Umberto NXT LCA. With this variety of LCI databases the appropriate datasets will be at your hand. Even the research of upstream processes is possible without effort using the Expand function. Try it when testing the software. 

Using established methods for impact assessment

Which impact indicators are most important to you? Decide for yourself! Of course, Umberto NXT LCA supports the familiar Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) methods such as ReCiPe, Impact 2002+, Eco-Indicator 99, IPCC, TRACI, USeTox, and many more. 

Show visually where in the life cycle the environmental impact occurs

Presenting environmental potentials in a nutshell

You want to visualize the results of your Life Cycle Assessment project convincingly and in a straight forward way? Then you should show the environmental impacts of your product as a Sankey diagram. This will help you to display the relevant findings and communicate them. 

Life Cycle Analysis with transparency

All calculations made in Umberto NXT LCA are transparent, all datasets can be examined. Consequently, the scientific expectation when conducting a Life Cycle Assessment project is met. Moreover, it gives you the good feeling to know how the results are generated. Several publications explain the concept of Umberto and its method of calculation.
