I am using ELCD database for my research work. In the results there is a process named "container glass". I don't understand its relation and usage in my assessmemt ?

Thank you in advance for your supports.

Regards.

Hi Matt, no, I think that the issue is that ELCD doesn't haven an appropriate process built in to deal with the spoil resulting from the electricity generation. It therefore default to using glass container production as the way to getting rid of the spoil (as it uses some of it). Obviously, you'd need to produce LOTs of this to deal with the spoil and this therefore has a big impact. You could add another process that has spoil as an input (i.e. that then deals with it) and then link that as the default.
