Ecoalim : une base de données des impacts environnementaux des matières premières utilisées en France pour l'alimentation animale

Abstract : Reducing the environmental impact of animal products is a major challenge for animal production chains. To handle strategies of impact mitigation, it is necessary to have accurate references on environmental impact of feed ingredients used in animal nutrition. The ECOALIM database provides life cycle inventories and environmental impact of feed ingredients utilized in France. Based on life cycle assessment methodology, it calculates the impacts on climate change, eutrophication, acidification, non-renewable energy use, phosphorus consumption and land use for different system boundaries: at the field gate, stored agencies gate, harbour gate, and plant gate. Technical data from 2008 to 2012 were utilized. The database contains 150 values including 58 national average feed ingredients, 27 variants and 10 foreign feed ingredients. The impacts of average feed ingredients are consistent with our expert knowledge and international bibliography, and rely on inventories modelling more exhaustive than the European database Agrifootprint. The utilization of technical leverages should be chosen in accordance with the environmental issue at the local level. The ECOALIM database relies on precise and homogenous data. It provides for the first time to our knowledge all the minor components and makes it possible to construct full formulas and to investigate innovative feed formulas accounting for economic and environmental criteria.
