Use advice for data set
The data set should be used for LCI/LCA studies where bulk commodities or packaged goods have to be transported via river. The data set allows individual settings of the variable parameters. The following parameters are variable (default settings): utilisation ratio (77%), distance (100 km). Default values of the variable parameters have to be checked and adjusted for individual use. The data set does not include the fuel supply route. Therefore the fuel supply data set (diesel) has to be linked with this data set. Vessel production and end-of-life treatment are not part of the data set (negligible from a LCA point of view).
Data set use approval
