The Titanium Dioxide Manufacturers Association (TDMA) represents the major producers of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and has been their voice in Europe since 1974. Our members develop products and applications that are seen in almost every aspect of daily life. Across the globe, TiO2 is used in everything from paints, plastics and paper to make-up and sunscreen. For more information about TDMA and our members products and applications please our website

Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data for TiO2

The Titanium Dioxide Manufacturers Association (TDMA) has been working for a number of years to understand and reduce the environmental impacts of titanium dioxide (TiO2) manufacture and released the first industry-average LCI data for TiO2 in 2014.

The dataset available through this node represents an industry average cradle-to-gate life cycle inventory for TiO2. It is based on 2016 data that is representative of TiO2 production by TDMA members in Europe, Africa, the Americas, Australia (Oceania), and Asia outside of China. The resulting inventory has been critically reviewed and is compliant with the ILCD Handbook and entry-level requirements for data submission to the European Life Cycle reference Database (ELCD).

The TiO2 LCI dataset is intended to be used by any organisations wishing to incorporate up-to-date and relevant TDMA average TiO2 data into their LCA studies. Crucially, it can be used as a secondary dataset in the development of cradle-to-gate and cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment studies of TiO2-containing products, including Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) studies and environmental product declarations (EPD).
