Or do I need to manually insert the value of emissions in the output flow?

I have downloaded impact assessment method openLCA LCIA methods 1.5.7
in openLCA by (120 points)

Indeed, you need to insert the methane emissions, and then use an LCIA method to obtain the GHG-results; this allows openLCA to calculate overall methane emissions and GHG indicator values (not sure if this answers your question?)

Thank you for your reply, yes it does answer my question. However, when I looked at 'impact analysis' of my 'land application' process, the value for both freshwater and marine aquatic ecotoxity is zero. I am unsure of this as land application of manure should have extreme impact on these two.

Also, I have downloaded the production of bottle example. So under 'Bottle-End-Of-Life-treatment', in process 'waste incineration of plastic', there are different kinds of output flows such as acenaphthene, acetic acid, arsenic etc, where do the values come from ?
