A simple, sector specific webtool was developed within the EU funded 'LCA to go' project, to enable SMEs to perform first environmental assessments of their industrial machines and machine tools. The tool was applied together with several SMEs, sixteen of which provided feedback on their user experience, applicability, value of the results and future plans with the tool. The software flow of the webtool is presented together with a summary of the outcome of the case studies. Based on the feedback and the application of the webtool further development options for the sector specific tool were developed.
