Dear all best regards.

I am developing a carbon footprint assessment comparing Simapro and OpenLCA and when I checked the impact factor in the IPCC 2013 method in Simapro, for example, there are substances such as Butane, perfluoro- with a GWP of 9200 kg CO2 eq / kg, but in the OpenLCA LCIA IPCC 2013 there is no such substance.

I would like to know that occurs and how could I solve that situation.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Of course you can always add specific flows to impact categories of LCIA methods manually. >= openLCA 1.8's feature LCIA checks helps you in identifying flows that are not captured by an LCIA method or specific impact category http://www.openlca.org/release-openlca-1-8

I hope this helps.
