General comment
TYPE OF DATASET For every chemical compound three datasets are created; the unit process (partially terminated system), the non-energy and transport component of the partially terminated system, and the cumulative life cycle inventory dataset (system process). For more information and flow chart see the report (ecoinvent, 2017, Data on the Production of Chemicals created for the EU Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) pilot phase implementation, www.ecoinvent.org, ecoinvent Association, Z\xc3\xbcrich, Switzerland). This dataset represent the cumulative life cycle inventory dataset (system process). PROCESS DESCRIPTION This product has different commercial names, such as Luperox\xc2\xae 101 and Trigonox 101. See, for example, the list of names offered in Haz-Map\xc2\xae: Information on Hazardous Chemicals and Occupational Diseases by Jay A. Brown, M.D., M.P.H. (https://hazmap.nlm.nih.gov/) U.S.National Library of Medicine. As a product, it is 'Used to vulcanize or cross-link elastomers and polyolefins; [ExPub: EPA - TSCATS] Used as a polymer additive, crosslinking agent, for curing resins, and to make belting, rubber and plastic hose, other rubber products, and plastics; [ExPub: Government of Canada: Screening Assessment]\xe2\x80\x9d (from the sources/uses section of Haz-Map, retrieved from: https://hazmap.nlm.nih.gov/category-details?id=19492&table=copytblagents, accessed 27 January 2017). The activity starts when the raw materials enter the process. Materials entering the process are included as well as energy uses, infrastructure and emissions.

Water content of the reference product: 0.0 kg Biogenic carbon content of the reference product: 0.0 kg DATA QUALITY ASSESSMENT The data quality ratings for the datasets were determined as the average of the 5 individual ratings for Technological Representativeness, Geographical Representativeness, Time-related representativeness, Precision/uncertainty, and implementation of the End of Life Formula. The final scores for these 5 descriptors were determined by the independent, external reviewer after a discussion with the internal reviewers. The basis for this determination was generally a contribution analysis of the material and energy inputs as well as direct resource uses and emissions. This process was required by the tender. The contribution analysis is based on the most important flows in the dataset, defined in the tender specifications as \xe2\x80\x9cthe unit processes contributing cumulatively to at least to 80% of the total environmental impact based on characterised and normalised results\xe2\x80\x9d. In addition to unit processes, direct emissions also qualified as input exchanges for this approach. For the normalization, the normalisation factors \xe2\x80\x9cEC-JRC Global (2010 or 2013), per person\xe2\x80\x9d available at http://eplca.jrc.ec.europa.eu/?page_id=140 were used. For each parameter, the DQR scores were chosen to best reflect the conditions and quality of the amount value, the appropriateness of the chosen exchange for the specific needs of the system under analysis, and the quality of the foreground and background data for aggregated inputs of exchanges from the technosphere, i.e. not direct emissions or resource uses. ENERGY AND TRANSPORT INFORMATION SOURCE Energy and transport was used in both the foreground and background of this dataset. When building the dataset, energy and transport demands were supplied directly by datasets provided by thinkstep. The background for every other input from technosphere uses a modified version of the ecoinvent database, created specifically for the PEF. In this version, every instance of energy and transport supply, anywhere in the database, was replaced by a dataset from thinkstep. This ensures that every demand for energy and transport, in the foreground and in the background, is supplied by a thinkstep dataset. BILL OF MATERIALS The bill of material includes the following inputs: 2-methyl-2-butanol: 0.382663448467 kg chemical factory, organics: 3.97683688348e-10 unit heat, in chemical industry: 0.385504625393 MJ nitrogen, liquid: 0.0188899751965 kg sulfuric acid: 0.336357787256 kg tap water: 0.0258494397426 kg wastewater, average: -2.68436489635e-06 m3 Electricity: 0.431558734866 kWh Thermal energy (MJ): 2.49891462486 MJ 2,5-dimethylhexane-2,5-dihydroperoxide: 0.773701504968 kg. NOT INCLUDED EXCHANGES The following exchanges have not been included in the inventory as they are not part of the official list of elementary exchanges published by the JRC. The EC and JRC were not able to provide an extended flow list during the duration of the data creation. If the JRC decides to include these exchanges in the master data, they may be added to the exchange section of the dataset by ecoinvent as part of a maintenance. The absence of these exchanges does not change the scores calculated with the ILCD recommended methods, but that might not be the case for other LCIA methods.
