Sustainability tool for Ecodesign, footprint calculations & LCA


SULCA is a software tool to perform Ecodesign and Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) in a reliable and transparent manner. It can be used to accurately calculate the environmental, carbon and water footprints for evaluating sustainability and environmental performance of a product, process, technology, and other systems.

In SULCA, results are presented in a comprehensive and user-friendly interface that includes charts and reports of different environmental and sustainability-related key performance indicators (KPIs). SULCA interface also offers a configuration canvas to carry out LCA modeling and to perform life-cycle inventory (LCI) and impact assessment (LCIA) calculations.

Sulca features include:

  • A highly visual and flexible user interface for efficient modelling and evaluation of results
  • An LCA model configuration toolkit based on a flowsheet modeling approach
  • Database compatibility with the most popular LCI databases such as Ecoinvent v2 and v3, as well as MS Excel import and export support
  • A flexible equation editor
  • Connectivity, data transfer and co-simulation options through FMI support

SULCA is a reliable and affordable tool to help you assessing the environmental impact of your product including carbon and water footprints, as well as other environmental KPIs.

Environmental impact assessment based on reliable and systematic methods

SULCA relies on the life cycle analysis methodology for assessing environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life cycle of a commercial product, process, or service. Starting from raw material extraction and processing, all the way through the product's manufacture, distribution and use, to the recycling and disposal of the materials composing it. LCA is a methodology standardized in the ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.
