Update of the ILCD 2011 Midpoint method version 1.04 in SimaPro

We are happy to announce that an updated version of the ILCD 2011 Midpoint method is now available in SimaPro

September 24, 2014

The update is needed as some shortcomings to ILCD 2011 Midpoint method version 1.03 were found, these have now been corrected.  The method has also been expanded to include normalization factors.


Since the method is used in the currently running European PEF/OEF pilot, we found it important to send out this intermediate update to all our users. Note that if you are participating in the pilot project you probably already have received the update through other channels. If you already imported the update, there is no need to import this update as it is the same.


In the instruction manual below you will find more information about this update, namely:

  • Issues found and how they were solved in the corrected version
  • Background of the new normalization sets
  • Instructions for importing the update


This release (September 19, 2014) is only compatible with SimaPro 8.0.0 - 8.0.3. Make sure to read and follow the update instructions in the manual carefully.


Should you have any questions about the update procedure or the method implementation in SimaPro, feel free to contact us.
