SimaPro 9.6 update details


Software release date: 31-3-2024
Deployment date: 15-4-2024

Updates in SimaPro 9.6:

Updates to data libraries

  • SimaPro 9.6 includes Ecoinvent 3.10

  • (the allocation cut-off by classification system model is included by default,
    other system models are available as additional downloadable libraries)

Updates to impact assessment methods

  • Characterization factors have been added to all applicable methods for:

    • New and formerly missing occupation and transformation flows

    • New and formerly missing energy resources

    • New regionalized water flows

    • Formerly missing waterborne emissions of water to the oan sub-compartment

    • Formerly missing nitrogen and phosphorus substances

  • Characterization factors have been updated in all applicable methods as follows:

    • Mappings of land use types from the original methods to SimaPro land use types have been revised with resulting changes in characterization factors for a few land use flows

    • Sub-regions that do not have a characterization factor in the original method have inherited the characterization factor of the main country (e.g. BR-GO has inherited the characterization factor of BR) instead of inheriting it from the global region

    • Characterization factors for energy resources have been aligned within an impact category on either higher or lower heating value

    • Characterization factors of a few nitrogen and phosphorus substances have been updated based on corrected stoichiometry calculations

  • Additional updates/corrections have been implemented for all IPCC 2021 methods, all LC-IMPACT methods, Land use biodiversity (Chaudhary et al., 2015), all ReCiPe 2016 methods and BEES+

SimaPro and Ecoinvent recently held an Ecoinvent 3.10 webinar -

the recording can be watched on Youtube here:

Please note that the only version of Ecoinvent that works with SimaPro is the version in SimaPro.
You cannot buy Ecoinvent separately and then get it to work in SimaPro.
