Add Content

The content of wECOmpare will be kept up-to-date in a wiki-like manner with two ways of contribution. First, all data points of Life Cycle Impact Assessments (LCIA) can be updated or completed by users. All LCIA results allowed to be published can be integrated into the continuously growing data pool. Second, the fully transparent calculation methods can be updated by scientists or other interested people. This allows wECOmpare to always use the current scientific state of LCIA methods. Both ways of contribution together allow wECOmpare to become a knowledge authority for questions of ecological performance of product types and its use. >> ECOmpared

Improve Platform

The platform behind wECOmpare is Open Source. It will allow to quantitatively evaluate the ecological performance of product types and their use. For this purpose it needs to support the structuring and aggregating of relevant Life Cycle Impact Assessment data. Moreover, it enables users to vary most important assumptions that are the base any ecological evaluation. Finally, selected simple graphical representations make the results of comparisons easy to understand. The platform development is done as a GitHub project. >> wECOmpare Github.
