CES Eco Selector is a practical tool that helps you to address environmental objectives in engineering and design. It combines CES Selector's powerful materials and process selection capabilities with a unique Eco Audit Tool and a comprehensive eco data module.
The core CES selection software provides tools to browse, search, and interact with materials data plus powerful analysis capabilities. You can select suitable materials for your application and rank them according to 'eco-cost' and engineering performance. This provides a rational process for identifying the best materials for your design objectives and for making materials substitutions.
The Eco-audit tool is a quick and easy tool for estimating the energy usage and CO2 footprint of a product design at each phase in the product lifecycle. The user enters information about product composition, processing, usage, transportation, and disposal. The tool then combines this with eco property data on the materials and processes used in the design. It estimates the energy usage and CO2 output resulting from each stage in the product lifecycle.http://www.grantadesign.com/products/ecoselector/
