Life-cycle analysis database

Yippee! I've been trying to find a free database of LCA information (to answer questions like 'what's the embodied energy or embedded energy of a fluorescent light bulb?') and now I think I have found one - http://lca.jrc.ec.europa.eu/lcainfohub/introduction.vm

Update...


Sadly the EU database didn't seem very user friendly. I've now found the
The University of Bath database
which looks small but useful.

p.s. The database operators encouraged me to add This URL too.
