Hello, I suppose to have found some errors in ReCiPe 2016 Endpoint. I have tested the method with ecoinvent 3.6 cutoff in OLCA with method package 2.0.4 v2 and ecoinvent 3.5 in SimaPro.
The process analysed is:
market for electricity, high voltage | electricity, high voltage | Cutoff, S - IT
The characterization step reports higher values for water consumption:
And moreover the normalization is wrong, in detail, the method uses the same NFs than SimaPro (which perform: Normalized result=Characterized result*NF) despite OpenLCA perform the inverse operation (Normalized result=Characterized result / NF). In fact, by using the inverse factors to obtain the normalized values, the results are comparable.
I would like to have clarification about the different results obtained for water consumption and the mistake on the NFs.
