Can you confirm that it's not possible to import a process from eg agrifootprint in another database eg ecoinvent and run an LCA with processes from both databases at the same time?
Many thanks

Hello Sophie! Of course that is possible. Just make sure it makes sense (e.g. same system model, consistent modelling approaches, compatible LCIA methods, etc.). And I also recommend to create backups of your original databases as you can quickly mess up a database when importing one database into another.

Thanks Jonas,
I was wondering because when importing "Beef cattle for slaughter, at beef farm Economic" from agrifootprint 3 into ecoinvent_35 and using the same impact assessment methods (the PEF recommended ones that I compiled), I got different results if I ran the LCA in agrifootprint or ecoinvent...
Then I thought it might have to do with flows not having the same UUID so imported agrifootprint flows in ecoinvent and that worked!
