I just noticed that the implementation of Ecological Scarcity 2013 in the openLCA methods database (v1_5_6, downloaded c. June 2017) contains CF for Cd, Zn, Cu and Ni to industrial soil. This is also true n the implementationof this LCIA methood in ecoinvent 3.3, but there's a note on the ecoinvent website saying that these CF should in fact be zero because of the way the method's set up. Anyone using this method might want to take note.
