I'm looking for open database of industrial companies and products, with bill of materials. For example - company name, industry, list of production. For each product - name, code, bill of material etc.


something like http://zinc.docking.org/, but for products.

  • For the entire world? Or a particular country/area?

  • It would be great for entire world, or for some industries (metallurgy, petrochemistry, car components etc).

The National (US) Renewable Energy Laboratory provide open-source LCI (Life Cycle Inventories) for products, which contain inputs to and outputs from production of products. From the "on the project" page:

The U.S. Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database is a publicly available database that allows users to objectively review and compare analysis results that are based on similar data collection and analysis methods.

You can get to the site at: This link

See an example of an inventory of Ethylene, at plant here

  • This is not quite what I'm looking for. DB contain the raw input and output for typical technological processes, not properties and bom for products. Input and output materials a not in the list of products. Sorry.

I heard about a startup launching a platform for business assets, maybe you don't want to buy or sell stuffs, but they will aggregate a lot of stuff: http://theassets.co

  • It doesn't allow without beta-registration, but signing up was fail. I see, it's a very-very new startup.
