Paper Title:
Comparison of Different Life Cycle Impact Assessment Software Tools
  Abstract

The comparison of five popular life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) software tools was conducted, including CES EDUPACK, Solidworks Sustainability, Sustainable Minds, SimaPro, and Gabi. Six comparison criteria were used, regarding the function to define a product and its life cycle, LCIA methods employed in the software, availability for the user to modify/update the databases embedded in the software, and detail information and Presentation of the results. The comparison results provide useful information for the user to select suitable software tools for LCIA applications.
