open LCA allocation

Post by smnipa » 15 Jun 2017 05:50

Hi Andrew,

I am facing some problem with allocation. I am trying to do economic allocation for two product lanolin and clean wool. Economic allocation factor for lanolin is 0.1635 and for clean wool is 0.8365. I am trying to put this value manually under the tab Economic, but its not work. I got the default economic value for lanolin 0.60 and clean wool 0.39986. But I need to allocate them for lanolin 0.1635 and for clean wool 0.8365. please advise me what is the procedure.

Hi, economic and physical allocation factors are not meant to be entered manually but they are meant to be calculated, economic factors from prices; either enter prices as economic flow property for a flow (which is then used for all processes where the flow appears), or enter costs and prices in the process inputs/outputs sheet; these prices are then used only in this process, and they are used even if prices for the flow (entered with the first approach) exist.
Hope this is useful!
Andreas
