I am running an LCA for agricultural products and I have download AWARE flow-based. I have information for water irrigation per crop, annually. I need to assess the water consumption impact assessment and AWARE is the recommended method from WULCA. However, the results are huge (e.g. water use= 1276954.756 m3). Can someone explain to me please why the results are not between 0.1 and 100 of w3 equivalents? And if there is an option to include annual calcualtions instead of monthly estimations?
Thank you in advance

It could be that some of the water flows in the inventory were excluded in the calculations. Could you tell me which database did you use, so that I can investigate further on the discrepancies in the result? Alternatively, you can also check the water flows that might not have been considered in the LCIA calculation to confirm the hypothesis.

Hope it helps,
