For a particular project related to food, we are using a food database to do an analysis of procurement. I have been trying to connect to the database using OpenLCA and the Olca Python package with mixed success.
With help from other questions in this forum I have been able to connect, build a product system, calculate the system, and export the results of the many processes I need.
However, when comparing the results from the Olca method to calculation within OpenLCA, the results come out different.
The export from OpenLCA is more in-depth and seems to go a lot deeper than the Olca analysis. There are flows missing in every sheet in the Excel export.
So far I have tried:
1. Using various calculation methods in Olca
2. Different databases to cross-compare
3. Different Impact Assessments
I have seen similar questions but no real answers as to how to retreive the same Excel export from Olca-IPC as one can from OpenLCA, meaning the same level of detail.
You can find my code here.
