Pulse Canada is developing a complete inventory of data for Canadian pea and lentil production to produce national-level life cycle assessments of Canadian pea and lentil production, which will outline the environmental impacts of these two production systems.

The objectives of the project are to:

  1. Develop representative life cycle inventories for Canadian peas and lentils suitable for incorporation into public LCA databases; and
  2. Develop ISO-compliant life cycle analyses of Canadian pea and lentil production.

This data could be used by food manufacturers and ingredient companies to conduct environmental assessments of pulse ingredients in their products. The data collected is expected to be published by the fall of 2020.
