Is it possible to have another product flow in the output or is it not calculated at all?
For example, if the output has coolant remaining in the loop? or must it then be declared as waste?

Hi Yasemin,

Good queestion - indeed a second product is not considered; waste is considered. Also a potential further chain using the second product is not considered. If you want to use it, you need to apply allocation and make a next process that consumes both products (in the amount that you want, it is not necessarily the amount they are produced in the process.
