While Global Warming Potential, Eutrophication, Water Scarcity, and Resource Depletion of Fossil Fuels are calculated using production data and LCA methodology, Chemistry is assessed using a mixed approach that includes qualitative modifiers based on the chemicals management requirements of different certifications and programs. BCI production information has not yet been integrated into the Higg MSI so it can’t be included as a raw material process but they have had their program assessed to the Chemistry Qualifier Survey and are included as a chemistry modifier. Meanwhile, CmiA has submitted the production data required to calculate the raw material process impacts so it is listed as a raw material process option.
