Post subject:  Cradle-to-grave analysis using EIO-LCA

Is EIO-LCA only applicable for Cradle-to-gate/consumer analysis? Response would be greatly appreciated.

No, it is useful for both cradle-to-gate and cradle-to-consumer analysis. The producer basis models help with cradle-to-gate and the purchaser basis models help with cradle to consumer.

As is, EIO-LCA models are not generally useful for cradle to grave because the end of life processes are not consistently modeled.
