Database evolution

Database such as Agribalyse must be updated frequently, to improve and reflect science" state of the art". We are already working on the next version of the database.

User contributions are essential to improve and develop the database. The willingness of Agribalyse's partners to encourage external contributions in the future, while ensuring the consistency and quality of the database. More precise rules for incorportation of external data are currently under discussion.

On the other hand, it is inevitable despite our efforts and the quality control processes, that some errors are still found in the database. We will indicate here those identified by partners and / or users, pending their correction in future updates. Some points correspond to errors, others to points of potential improvement. Users are encouraged to contact us if they believe they have identified other errors.

The Agribalyse team will also put some efforts into contributions for improving the general LCA method (seeLife Cycle Assessment Method)

Main mistakes already identified for the future update of AGB 3.1 :

  • A confusion in the name and columns order of the excel file “produits alimentaires” was identified immediately after its upload the 6th of October 2022. This file has been corrected and replaced the 12th of Octobre 2022.

  • An unfortunate error in the construction of the mix “Soja bean, BR, feed average” has been identified. It sums up 2 LCI including deforestation instead of making the average between a LCI with deforestation and a LCI without deforestation. The impact on the result is reasonable.
