Ecoinvent from the ecoinvent website ships without the openLCA reference flows. Therefore, the version from the ecoinvent website is not fully compatible with openLCA and the results are different (wrong) compared to those of ecoinvent from https://nexus.openlca.org. It is not recommended to use the version of ecoinvent from the ecoinvent website in openLCA.

So, when you talk about that (i've added a pic to the question) do you mean the original ecoinvent ecospold2 files?
