Use advice for data set
The LCI data set should be used for LCI/ LCA studies where BPA is used along the production chain. The most important application fields of BPA are in the building and construction sector (e.g. improving insulation and lightning), electrical and electronics (e.g. large flat screens and monitors, consumer electronics equipment and fuse boxes as well as the large market of optical data storage), automotive industry (e.g. mirror and headlamp houses), domestic appliances, packaging, medical devices as well as leisure and safety (e.g. sunglasses, goggles, helmet). It may be processed by all of the usual injection moulding and extrusion techniques.

General comment
The main data source was a data collection from European producers of Bisphenol A (BPA). Primary data on gate-to-gate BPA production is derived from site specific information for processes under operational control supplied by the participating companies of this study. Two different Bisphenol A producers with plants in four European countries were participating in the primary data collection. Data collected account for 70% of the entire European BPA production. In order to keep confidentiality as third dataset the average primary data from the previous Bisphenol A Eco-profile was used. The data for the upstream supply chain until the precursors are taken from the database of the software system GaBi 8.
