Hello openLCA team,
i am modelling the process chain of an car seat. In some processes, I use the flow “compressed air” (production mix, 7bar, high efficiency and low power consumption – GLO) from the elcd 3.2 Database. (To provide 1m3 compressed air, 0.342 MJ electricity is used)
When I do the Life Cycle Impact Assessment, there are no contributions to any impact category regarding compressed air. It does not matter if I use 1m3 or 1.0 E7m3 compressed air. I thought there have to be contributions to impact categories based on the Input flow, which is just electricity for compressed air.
Or do I have an error in reasoning?
