More about API and unique access to integration of environmental data


With our RESTful API, we match building material descriptions with a database of over 120.000 verified, accurate and up-to-date environmental data points for construction materials.


Why should you use the EmidatAPI

Data Management

Finding trustworthy and dependable environmental data is challenging, and the task of managing it is even more difficult. At Emidat, we gather environmental data from over 15 different databases, cross-checked with manufacturer websites, sustainability reports, and verified EPDs directly from manufacturers. As a result, our comprehensive database includes more than 120,000 emission factors, providing a centralized hub to access all in one place. You don’t have to worry about double entries or inconsistencies in the language of the datasets.

Maintaining up-to-date data is often a tedious task, requiring manual validation periodically. At Emidat, we update our background databases on a weekly basis, sparing you the need for manual updates. Additionally, we make sure that you can easily track all updates and changes made within the database.

Automated Updates

Material Selection

Identifying and sourcing sustainable and eco-friendly construction materials that meet performance requirements can be difficult, especially considering factors like cost and availability. With the EmidatAPI, you can assess the emission factor of specific building materials, enabling you to seamlessly integrate environmental information and informed decision-making into your existing workflow.

Our API aggregates 15+ different databases into one big database. We update it on a weekly basis, so you can be sure you use the most up-to-date information!

With EmidatAPI you can obtain Emission Factors of Building Materials – Search by concrete input or describe the desired material. With this information, you can make informed decisions on what building material to choose!

Automized matching with API

Step 1 :

Our RESTful API seamlessly integrates environmental data into your software products.

Step 2:

We process your natural language description of
building materials from material lists, bills of quantities, 3D building models, and similar.

Step 3:

We return the best available emission factor based on your input. E.g., if your description was “cement”, we’ll return an average. If your description was product and supplier-specific, we return specific data (if available).
