Hi,

I am new to openLCA and trying to model the incineration of a glulam beam with heat recovery using ecoinvent 3.6. However, when I select the process "treatment of waste wood, untreated, municipal incineration, heat, for reuse in municipal incineration" there appear to be no input or output flows others than the one output flow and "heat for reuse municipal  waste incineration only" and therefore gives no results when I generate resulst using any LCIA method . Would you be able to provide me with any insight as to why this may be the case?

Thanks

Dear Morris,

it looks like this process is an intermediate process that itself has no function. To model the impacts of the wood treatment, you can use the  process 'market for heat, for reuse in municipal waste incineration only' that uses the same reference flow
