The module describes a fictitious machine made 100% of steel. The energy consumption for the production process is assumed to be the same as the energy consumption for the production of a car. The transportation distances for delivering the parts to the assembly plant are estimated. This module should not be used if its relative importance would be high in a certain environmental inventory. Average service life:10'000 hours.
