Commonly asked questions

The free trial allows you to find out how Mobius works. Scenarios can be drawn up, impact references can be searched in databases, questions can be asked to experts, and you can look at how a full life cycle can be modeled & modified. It functions as a free training to learn more about environmental measurements and how you can start measuring LCAs in an easy way.

The features are the same as for the paid Mobius account. The only difference is the #references you can take from our impact (LCI) database Ecoinvent. This holds a maximum of 10 references in the free trial. 

The free trial lasts a total of 14 consecutive days. The user of the free trial can add 10 reference points from our environmental impact databases in these 14 days.

Yes! The Mobius tool has the ability to add all life cycle stages to a product. From production to the end-of life. (Cradle-to-grave & Cradle-to-cradle)
