Allocation

Post by smnipa » 29 Jun 2017 04:52

Hi Andrews,

I am using Open LCA 1.4. I am having some difficulties for economic allocation. Do I need to use economic flow property for economic allocation?
I need guideline for the procedure of economic allocation in open LCA.

Hi, in 1.4, you indeed need economic flow properties for economic allocation, which are the same in any process where a flow is used. Therefore, we have implemented in newer versions of openLCA the possibility to enter costs and revenues for each input and output in a process, and these entries are used before any flow properties, for economic allocation. I would therefore recommend to switch to 1.6.
Hth,
Andreas
