The EXIOBASE2 (base year 2007) is one of the most extensive EE-MRIO systems available worldwide. This holds also true for the water part (W-MRIO). A large number of products are covered and an especially high level of spatial detail is provided with regard to agricultural water consumption. Further detailed information on thermal freshwater emissions were incorporated in the database as well as data on emissions to freshwater of the most relevant nutrients. In this case study we carried out an extensive analysis of Europe's direct and indirect demand for water and the impacts created within and outside its borders. As such, the EXIOBASE2 is at the very forefront of W-MRIO development and application.
