Hello everyone,

I've recently downloaded the openLCA LCIA method database (version 2.0.5) in the .zolca format. However, when I add it to openLCA nothing appears except for the elementary flows. I've added it through both the "restore database" and "new database" pathways always to no avail.

Am I doing something wrong? I've already read the manual for this database and managed to have other sources work (ecoinvent 3.7 for example).

The "database" here is just the format for openLCA (a compressed database for openLCA), which in this case indeed only contains the methods. You are not doing something wrong but need a datasource with process datasets if you do not want to create all processes yourself.

Best wishes,
