Work has now started to update the ICE database.
The ICE database is an embodied energy and carbon database for building materials and has been downloaded by over 20,000 users from around the world.
We have managed to obtain funding to update the ICE database, with a release expected hopefully later this year. It will allow the database to remain freely available and fully independent - both of which were key criteria.
The funding has been kindly provided by:
- Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) (See https://www.rssb.co.uk/improving-industry-performance/sustainable-development/rail-carbon-tool)
- Environment Agency (See https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/environment-agency)
- Heathrow Airport (See http://your.heathrow.com/sustainability/)
We are very much at the start of the update. We will keep our networks informed of key developments through our email lists, our website, and on our LinkedIn page for more regular updates (Follow
