Hello there,

when I calculate the impacts of my created product system, the GWP and Ozone layer depletion - and also some other impact categories depending on which impact assessment method I use - always have the value "0", no matter which LCIA method I use.

I use openLCA version 1.10.3, the databases I imported are Environmental Footprints and ELCD, and I use the openLCA LCIA methods package.

Of course there are also other processes involved, but at least for transport processes with fossil fuels I think there should be some global warming potential included?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Julia,

for Environmental Footprint, you need to use the Environmental Footprint LCIA package. The database is in its own world, so to say, and should (EF language of course: "shall") not be used outside of it.

Best wishes,
