Linking processes from ecoinvent3.1

Hello everyone,

I am a new user of OpenLCA and am facing problems using datasets from ecoinvent3.1 in OpenLCA.

Since I do not have a licence for the full ecoinvent database I download the datasets I need from the ecoinvent homepage (I have access via my university) and import them into OpenLCA.
First of all, I noticed when importing the processes in the ecospold2 format, there are no inputs into the process and only the reference flow on the output side. Why are the used resources and emissions not listed as in- and outputs?
Furthermore, I am not sure how to link these processes. Is it true that I can not connect a process taking place in europe [RER] with a process taking place in switzerland [CH] ??

Kind regards and many thanks in advance,

Hi Joe, see also the other posts in the forum - using the datasets as they are provided by ecoinvent will not work well in openLCA, therefore we are providing an adapted version for openLCA, here:
Best wishes,
