The Product Life Database contains data useful in assessing and documenting compliance with imperatives in the Living Product Challenge of the International Living Future Institute.
- Data on personal consumption expenditures by product category come from the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).
- Data on product prices, lifetimes, and energy use characteristics originate from the OpenIO project, undertaken by Sylvatica during the period 2008-2010.
- Specifically, they are drawn from the file "ProductEnergyUse Master20 apr23 11h.xls".
- The energy use data represent the final results of an extensive effort to compile publicly available data on product lifetimes, prices, and energy use properties, in order to enable assessments of product life cycle impacts from cradle-to-grave including the use phase, in conjunction with IO LCA modeling of product upstream impacts.
