NREL LCI & OpenLCA v1.6.3 - IA results not reported

Post by RebeccaLeBlanc » 13 Oct 2017 22:01

Hi,

I ran a quick test using ELCD and NREL's ILCD.

The ELCD database returned all expected resuts. Please see attached files for model & results - I'm referring to the "Impacts" tab of the .xlsx.
The ILCD database appeared to calculate IA results - but, nothing reported for each impact category. I tried CML, Traci, Recipe - same thing.

Please see attached files for both databases, and, if possible, what am I not doing correctly?

Appreciate your time.

I figured it out - had one unit that needed a conversion factor - fixed that - all is well.

Hi Rebecca,

I'm experiencing a similar issue where my model graph shows all upstream processes and inputs, but these do not show up in my Project comparisons and I believe they should contribute majorly to the impacts! Could you please elaborate on the conversion factor mistake that you found??

Thank you!

Same problem here. I've scanned through the whole unit groups but didn't see any missing information. Does anyone have a solution about using NREL data? Thanks!

(just a small comment: if supply chains do not contribute, it could also be due to missing elementary flows in the processes; as you all see, it is probably fair to say that the NREL data "has multiple issues" and it is on our list to fix these..)
