Importing ecoinvent 3, cut-off database

Post by LAM » 07 May 2014 21:46

Hello, are we able to import this new dataset yet? I have downloaded from ecoinvent site, but been unable to import into OpenLCA 1.4 as an ecospold 2 file. OpenLCA does not recognize it. Is there a procedure to import?


Thanks!

Hi, as usual the import of the version provided by ecoinvent does not work nicely as the system linking gets lost (among other things). We have just today made the cut-off system available in nexus. Users who have ordered the ecoinvent license from us can simply download the new cut-off model.

Wonderful news. Next question, my version 1.4 doesn't have an option to import zolca files. See image attached. Is there an update to 1.4 that I need?

Hi, this is available as database import in the openLCA 1.4 version, already in the beta 3 version that is public.

If you want to create a new database, just right-click and then select import database

Nb we are quite confident that we will be able to release the non-beta version next week.

Hi there! I purchased Ecoinvent 3, but not from your organisation. Is it possible to import the database in OpenLCA without paying the additional 500 Euro?

Please see the other posts on this topic.
Why did you buy from someone else if I may ask?

Sadly the other posts about this topic are not very helpful. I bought Ecoinvent from the Ecoinvent Centre because I didn't know there would be problems with importing it in OpenLCA
