How Mobius works

Model your product and its impact
Create your complete product inventory in Ecochain Mobius. Tap into the various environmental databases we offer, like Ecoinvent, by linking the product’s impact to appropriate datasets. Choose the scope of your LCA and assess the impact of your product—right from the materials and components to processes involved in the manufacturing process.

Zoom in on the hotspots
Once you model your products, dive into the impact each phase creates. You don’t need a magnifying glass to see the major contributors to your product’s environmental impact. Ecochain Mobius highlights the hotspots for you to assess and change if necessary.

Compare different products and scenarios
Incorporate iterations in your product design process. Substitute materials in your products’ composition and see if it has a lower or higher impact. You can also compare two products in your portfolio to see which one is more sustainable.

Share it with your team

Want a concise one-pager of your product footprint? Done! Ecochain Mobius summarizes your LCA result into a PDF. Want to dive deeper? No problem! Download your product’s inventory as a csv file or convert your results into a comprehensive xls file, showing all the impact categories in an overview. Ecochain Mobius does it all.
