S. EPA even provides sample checklists data sheets for LCA inventory development (USEPA 1993a). Their sample checklist includes descriptive elements such as the purpose of the inventory, assumptions used, the boundary, the basis for comparative claims (if any), computational models used, quality assurance, peer review attempts, and details about the data presentation. The inventory checklist also includes quantitative elements, such as listings of materials used, energy use and water usage, product coproducts, air emissions, water effluents, solid waste, transportation, and personnel data (Figure 2).
