SimaPro 9.2  生命週期評估軟體

 

 

 本公司提供SimaPro教育訓練及使用說明課程,歡迎詢問 !

生命週期評估(Life Cycle Assessment, LCA) 是現今產品發展與設計所需參考的一項重要指標方針,美國環境毒物及化學協會將其定義為一個衡量產品生產或人類活動所伴隨之環境負荷的工具, 不僅需要了解整個生產過程的 能量原料需求量及環保排放量還要將這些能量 原料及排放量所造成的影響予以評估,並提出改善的機會與方法.生命週期評估已為一種廣泛運用在分析產品對環境之衝擊的工具, 再加上環保意識的高漲,國際企業對於產品是否符合的各國環保法規規範,作為一國際化產品,必須要對此做嚴正的重視。傳統的生命週期評估,花費大量的人力、財力、物力,因此存在著太高成本與耗費時間的問題,在生命週期資料的收集和闡釋兩方面,是最為耗用成本的階段。

SimaPro 軟體是由荷蘭Leiden大學於1990年開發出來,現今已發展至SimaPro 9.2 的版本在生命週期評估的領域中,屬於國際上相當普遍使用的軟體,這套系統除了具有生命週期盤查的資料外,同時也給予環境衝擊的評估,並可比較在不同程序及原物料中對於環境所產生的衝擊大小。軟體除了針對各種環境衝擊可以建立一個環境指標外,還以樹狀圖清楚的表示環境負荷,藉由樹狀圖清楚的表現出各個輸入的能量與物料的分支,並在各項分支的子系統中以衡量的方式,依據類似像溫度計的表達方式,快速的判斷該物料及能量對環境之衝擊性。

SimaPro具有以下特色:

1. 可以結合各項不同的產品在同一產品項當中,找出其產品的生命週期

2. 可以將產品進行分解,並將每一個分解的零件回收是否評估做環境上的考量

3. 進行多項不同廢棄物處理策略對於環境的影響

4. 對於環境衝擊評估可利用不同的特徵化、標準化及權重的方法

5. 可將分析的結果以不同的方式顯現並自動進行單位間的換算

6. 同時由多人建構,也可以進行分開保存多個不同的檔案

7. 可以建立多種環保法規資料庫,目前內建有歐盟、美國及ISO等規範 

 

This tool can be used for data exchange between different data formats. Converted files can be used in most LCA Software, including SimaPro. This tool is a stand-alone application and runs on most operating systems. The openLCA format converter can convert the following data:

  • EcoSpold01 to ILCD
  • EcoSpold02 to ILCD
  • ILCD to EcoSpold01
  • ILCD to EcoSpold02

 

SimaPro 9.2: Discover what’s new

We’re proud to announce that SimaPro 9.2 is now available! This release offers updated contents in multiple

data libraries, ensuring the quality, consistency and reliability of the data and impact assessment methods.

The new version includes the latest ecoinvent 3.7.1 database and a new impact assessment method: IMPACT World+.

Software improvements 

Several software improvements and bug fixes were implemented in this release:


Improved export to the SimaPro online platform. Database parameters are now excluded from the CSV file.

New mapping files for export to ILCD. We have developed new mapping files for users to facilitate the data export from SimaPro (desktop) to ILCD format.

Silent installation is now possible for all SimaPro installers.

A cloud storage warning message has been added in the installers and when selecting a database.

Update of data libraries 

Ecoinvent 3.7.1 

SimaPro 9.2 includes the most recent version of the ecoinvent database. ecoinvent 3.7.1 includes more than 900 new and 1,000 updated datasets, including more than 100 new products. This update expands the coverage of the database in various sectors such as: metals, fertilizers, forestry and wood, packaging materials.


World Steel data in Industry data 2.0 library 

The implementation in SimaPro includes 45 datasets updated for 1 kg of steel products at factory gate (cradle-to-grave) modelled for 3 regions: Global, Asia, and Europe. These 45 updated datasets were added to the Industry data 2.0 library.


Library alignment with SimaPro online platform 

Agri-footprint 5, ecoinvent 3.7.1, Industry data 2.0, and USLCI will be available on the SimaPro online platform. Processes in those libraries (in SimaPro desktop) now also contain SimaPro platform IDs which facilitate the exchange of data between SimaPro desktop and online platform.


New impact assessment method: IMPACT World+

IMPACT World+ is a comprehensive and globally regionalized method for life cycle impact assessment (LCIA). The method is considered the update of the IMPACT 2002+, LUCAS, and EDIP methods. It is  based on a midpoint-damage framework with four distinct complementary viewpoints to present an LCIA profile.


Update of all methods including water substances 

All impact assessment methods containing water flows were updated to include new regionalized water substances. For these, the list of characterization factors was extended to include new geographies included in the Ecoinvent 3.7.1, primarily for sub-national regions of Brazil, India, and the US.


Obsolete data and superseded methods 

The ELCD (the European reference Life Cycle Database) and the Swiss input-output database will no longer be supported in SimaPro because they are outdated and no updates are expected. Additionally, a number of methods were moved to the Superseded folder and their maintenance in SimaPro will no longer be supported.


New: Report Maker 3 

The new version of Report Maker is now available. It includes minor functionality improvements and improved compatibility with more recent Microsoft Office versions.


Updating to Report Maker 3 from Report Maker 2 is optional and will be most relevant if you have experienced installation issues with Office 365.
