Abstract: Look@LCI is a software developed by the JRC and it has been specifically designed to analyse Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) datasets, developed in the Environmental Footprint (EF) context. It has been used during the EF pilot phase as a reference tool to calculate the Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) results of the EF-representative products (available at http://eplca.jrc.ec.europa.eu/EF-node/processList.xhtml?stock=EF_representative_data). Look@LCI allows the analysis of data sets under the International reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD), directly from the data files (.xml), without the need of mapping the EF nomenclature to a software-specific nomenclature. By avoiding the step of mapping the EF nomenclature to a software-specific one, all mistakes that may occur during this step are avoided. This means that EF-compliant data sets can be analysed without need of implementing the files in existing LCA softwares: as soon as a data set is available in a node of the Life Cycle Data Network, it can be analysed with Look@LCI. The results delivered by Look@LCI are therefore to be considered the reference ones to be taken into account when analysing EF-compliant datasets: results that are not aligned to the ones of Look@LCI, calculated through other LCA softwares, are not EF-compliant. This document provides guidance on how to use the software.
