This site presents the ReCiPe methodology for Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA). The objective is twofold:

  1. Provide generic information on the method, how to apply it, and on which principles it is based.

  2. Provided detailed information on the models used, and allow every researcher to analyse and potentially improve the models.

ReCiPe was created by RIVM, CML, PRé Consultants, and Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen
