Hi Yasemin,

e.g. in ecoinvent, this is described in the ecoinvent 3 method report; see also e.g. this article from a project I was happy to contribute (and lead, even), some years ago: https://www.readcube.com/articles/10.1007%2Fs11367-013-0670-5?author_access_token=uTKXu9RmwnEdzkABxkLVlPe4RwlQNchNByi7wbcMAY4hbIHqYus8MYapLCltH5PttD5ehLwKEQpkRxhQZ6pSR4TehyIiQnLpiOs1JTXIHUWh31FlDZO5MVoT85DSvQdx-f1nLZP3yNpa9T5NyDS0Cg==.
