Databases for the allocation of environmental impacts of meat co-products of cattle and sheep breeds

These databases have been developed within the framework of the project "Biophysical allocation of meat co-products", carried out in collaboration between INRAE, Idele, and Célène, and financed by Interbev between June 2019 and June 2020. They are the subject of:
