Hi, I have downloaded the NREL USLCI database from the following link and imported the database in openLCA

https://www.lcacommons.gov/lca-collaboration/National_Renewable_Energy_Laboratory/USLCI_2021_Q1_v1/datasets

But as you can see from the attached image that there are no available flows in manufacturing except 3112:Grain and oilseed milling. How can I access to the flows for other manufacturing? 

Thanks in advance

Data on the Federal Commons, including the USLCI, uses a common NAICS-based folder structure for technosphere flows. The USLCI includes the full folder system even when there are no flows for all the categories. In this case, the USLCI does not contain data for many of these industrial categories. So the data are not actually missing.
