This report presents calculations of energy use and carbondioxid emissions for different products and services. The calculations have been done with a computer program called EAP, that calculates the so called energy och carbondioxide intensity for products and services. The calculations take into account the whole life cycle of the product including raw materials, production, transportation, sales, and recycling. These data can then be combined with expenditure surveys to investigate some of the environmental impacts of household consumption patterns.
